Government workers give blood

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - City and County workers in Albany rolled up their sleeves today to give a little of themselves back to the community.

A blood drive was held in the government center this morning until just after lunch.

That's where we found Charlie Crapps. He's a human resource specialist with the county, but today became a human resource by donating blood to those who desperately need it.

"The neonatal unit at the local hospital here has a very dire need for blood," Crapps said. "And the different people walking around with those particular qualities in their blood and can help the younger people coming in the world who can't help themselves."

Crapps is a long time blood donor. He's given several gallons of blood throughout the past few decades.
