Albany -- The American Red Cross is going on the road this week to six Southwest Georgia towns and cities to save lives.
The Summer Rolling Blood Tour got underway in Albany Monday, and will continue in other South Georgia cities the rest of the week. The American Red Cross says they have seen a significant decline in donations since Memorial Day, but the need for blood continues.
They hope one day stops in the towns across South Georgia this week will build up their reserves before the Fourth of July, when so many people stop giving. Robbin Miller of the American Red Cross said "So many people are vacationing, traveling, not at home. Not on their regular schedule, they are forgetting to come in and donate blood around the fourth of July."
The Summer Rolling Blood Tour stop in Albany continues until 7 Monday.
Tuesday the American Red Cross will be taking blood donations in Sylvester from 1 PM to 6 PM at the Sylvester Plaza.
Wednesday in Tifton from 1PM to 6 PM at Tifton Curves on Hwy 41 North.
Thursday in Moultrie at the WalMart from 1 PM to 6 PM.
Friday in Adel at the Harvey's Supermarket on Hwy 37 from 1 PM to 6 PM.
Saturday in Valdosta at the Donor Center from 8 AM to 2 PM.
The American Red Cross has a goal of 33 units of blood donated each day, to build up reserves for the summer.
