Blood Drive in Acworth, Friday August 10th

The American Red Cross blood supply continues to be at an emergency level.

In fact, blood collections through the Red Cross are the lowest they have been in 15 years, due to extreme heat, severe storms and the mid-week Independence Day holiday.

On Friday, August 10, 2012 the Acworth Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Acworth Beach House.

The beach house is located in Cauble Park at 2293 Beach Street, Acworth, GA, 30101.

The Red Cross is the nation’s largest blood provider.  The Red Cross supplies more than 120 hospitals and heathcare facilities throughout Georgia.

Remember: one donor could potentially save up to three lives!

Every donor will receive a Shark Week T-shirt and will be entered in a drawing to win Georgia Aquarium tickets and a $3,000 gift card!

To schedule an appointment, call Jeff Chase at the Parks and Recreation Office at 770-917-1234 or e-mail him at jchase@acworth.org.

You never know who might need the blood you share.
