Blood drive honors 9/11 victims

CORDELE, GA (WALB) - Country Financial held a blood drive Thursday in remembrance of September 11th.

They hoped to hold the event Friday, but buses were already headed to Florida for another commemorative blood drive.

Organizers said they had plenty of people to thank for the turnout.

"We've had a tremendous turnout from law enforcement, first responders, the fire department, 911," said Melody Godfry with Country Financial. "Just overwhelming today. Overwhelming the bus and the wonderful ladies working, and me as well."

Organizers hope to host the event next year on the actual 9/11 anniversary.
