Blood drive to save lives

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Some public workers rolled up their sleeves and did a little public service today in Albany.

They took part in a Red Cross blood drive at the government center downtown. City, county, and Water, Gas and Light employees donated life saving pints to help others.

Amanda Hall says it's a great idea for employers to hold drives like this. They can even offer perks to employees willing to participate. She said, "There are incentives that they can do for their employees to encourage them to donate."

The blood supply is typically at its lowest levels during the summer as more people are injured in wrecks and fewer people donate.
