Phoebe employees give back

By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia's blood supply got a big boost from some hospital employees.  

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital hosted a blood drive Wednesday. It was a packed house in the Cafeteria Solarium as employees rolled up their sleeves to donate.

Employee Blake Garrett has been giving blood since she was in high school.

"I do donate on a regular basis. It only takes 30, maybe 45 minutes of my time and it's just a good way for me to give back to the community and as an employee of Phoebe, a way to give back to our patients who need blood," said Garrett.    

Phoebe regularly hosts drives with the American Red Cross. It's not just for employees. They encourage the public to come out and donate.
