One is today and the other two are next Thursday.
Today’s American Red Cross blood drive is scheduled for the East Georgia Regional Medical Center Office Building adjacent to the hospital on Fair Road. Hours are from 12:30 p.m. till 5:30 p.m. in the Mims Monroe Blood Services Center, Suite 307, on the third floor.

Most donations come from walk-ins who are always welcomed. However, if time is a factor a potential donor can make an appointment for a specific time to be able to get in and out quickly. To make an appointment by phone, call: 1-800-733-2767 (1-800-Red Cross). To make an appointment online, go to www.redcrossblood.org / Click on Make a Blood Donation Appointment.
There is still a chronic shortage of blood in the region and the Bulloch County Chapter of the American Red Cross urges all eligible donors to make an effort to visit one of the blood drives. Red Cross officials say all types of blood are needed.
