Blood drive at Carmike Wynnsong Theater

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People who donated blood got a discount on movie tickets. On Saturday, the Red Cross mobile unit was set up in front of Albany's Carmike Wynnsong Theater.

Organizers say with people away on vacation, donations are slower and supplies run low, so its important to get donations.

“Most families are away on vacation and the kids are out of school so thats why the supply gets very low during the summertime. Its important that people who stay in town or the surrounding areas donate blood because it will actually build up the supply,” says Constance Coleman.

She says they need all blood types.

If you missed today's blood drive you can give at their facility on Dawson Rd across from Merry Acres.
