ALBANY, GA (WALB) - With Memorial Day around the corner, one Southwest Georgia military fraternity decided to host a blood drive in honor of fallen soldiers and to give back to the community.
Psi Delta Tau Military Fraternity Incorporated held the event at a neighborhood Wal-Mart to help those in need.
This is the organization's first time doing the drive as one of their major initiatives for the year.
Organizers said the weather couldn't stop them from supporting their fellow military servicemen, fallen soldiers, and local community.
"We're veterans so we have perform our duties in the worst of circumstances. So for us, a little rain ain't nothing. It's really important for us to do this particular event. We were hoping we got flooding with a million people but we made great progress today, even though it was the holiday," said Lorenzo Doss, National Blood Drive Director, Psi Delta Tau.
Due to the success of their first drive, the fraternity plans to have a blood drive once a quarter.
