Give a great gift after Christmas!

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With information from Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital-

It's often called "the gift of life," and almost everyone can participate in proving this life-saving exercise.

What better way to finish up the Christmas holiday than by giving the gift of life by donating blood?

Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital will be holding a community blood drive on Thursday, December 26, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the main campus cafeteria solarium.

With the drive occurring the day after Christmas, many people will have family in town. This is an opportunity to come together as a family and give the gift of life! 

Every person who donates will receive either a Starbucks gift card or meal ticket as well as a free long sleeve T-shirt from the American Red Cross.

Also, if the goal of 100 units is met, each donor will be placed in a drawing to win a Kindle Fire courtesy of the American Red Cross.
