The American Red Cross continues to have an urgent need for blood donors of all blood types to give before the Labor Day holiday, even after many more donors stepped up to give following an urgent call issued in late July. Blood donations often decline during the summer months, particularly around summer holidays.
With school starting back up and summer activities coming to an end, there is stilltime for eligible donors to make a difference in the lives of patients this summer.
The Bulloch County chapter of the American Red Cross will sponsor two blood drives this week.
The first drive is today (Tuesday, August 12) in the Fellowship Hall at Statesboro Primitive Baptist Church. The drive will be memory of Jerry Brown. Hours will be from 2 till 7 p.m.
Wednesday, August 13, local Statesboro banks will sponsor a blood drive at Sea Island Bank in downtown Statesboro. Hours are from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m.
All types of blood are needed but this is a special need for donors with type O-Negative, B-Negative and A Negative blood.
