VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A Thomasville group will visit a Valdosta hospital to set up a treasure hunt blood drive Thursday.  

The community is encouraged to visit Smith Northview Hospital between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to give blood.

Thomasville's Southeast Community Blood Center needs 180 units of blood per day to keep up with the need for blood in our area.

O-negative and B-positive are the rarest blood types and have the biggest shortages.

"We've had as many as 45 units and as few as 25 but we encourage not only our employees but citizens from all around to come and give blood as often as they can," said Chuck Roberts, Smith Northview Assistant Administriator.

Those donating blood will receive a treasure hunt t-shirt. Tokens will be pinned to some of the t-shirts for a chance to win prize.
