Senoia area Blood Drive set for May 6
From Special Reports
Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages – accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.
On Monday, May 6, folks will have an opportunity to give blood in the Fellowship Hall at the Senoia United Methodist Church from 1-6 p.m. This blood drive is co-sponsored by the Senoia UMC and the Senoia Optimist Club. If you are unable to give, you are encouraged to notify others who may be able to donate.
The local blood drive hosts will be serving their “famous” grilled cheese sandwiches along with the goodies provided by the American Red Cross. Free coupons associated with several of the Senoia area businesses will also be provided to donors.
Donors at the Senoia blood drive are again asked to bring one or more non-perishable food items. These items will be made available to a local food bank in order to help those around us who are in need.
While “walk-ins” are welcome, potential donors may either sign up online at https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/find-drive or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
There is a need for all blood types. You are encouraged to please schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets today.
The Senoia United Methodist Church is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street.
