Senoia area Blood Drive set for today


From Special Reports

Maybe you want to give blood as a “thank you” for blood that was received by you, a family member, or some other loved one. Maybe you want to give blood so you can help someone in need.

Maybe you want to give blood to help save a life. Or, maybe you want to give blood because it’s the right thing to do.

If you’re eligible, please make your plans to attend the Monday, Feb. 3 blood drive serving the Senoia area. There is a critical need for blood!

Donors 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 local church 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.

Per the Red Cross records, there have been 43 blood drives hosted by the Senoia United Methodist Church and the Optimist Club of Senoia. At these drives, 1,945 units of blood have been collected from a total of 2,098 donors.

The Senoia United Methodist Church is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street.

While “walk-ins” are welcome, potential donors may either sign up online at or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

There is a need for all blood types.
