Albany - The American Red Cross in Albany saw an increase in blood donors today.

Ruby Ethridge drives from Baconton to donate. She says she gives regularly, and thinks everyone that is able should donate. She says, "It's not a hard thing to do and it's very simple and very easy. It's fast and the people here are so good and kind to you. It's a pleasure actually, because you are helping people out that can't help themselves."

The Red Cross has changed their hours. New Hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday Noon-7 PM. Tuesday, and Friday 8 AM-2 PM, and 9 AM to 2 PM on Saturday. The center is closed on Sunday.
