Summaries

Summary Sentence: The international service organization needs help to replenish its blood supplies.

Full Summary: The Red Cross needs help to replenish its blood supplies. Summer is the most difficult time of the year for collections because so many donors are travelling and most schools are either closed or have low attendance.

Summer is the most difficult time of the year for blood collections because so many donors are travelling and most schools are either closed or have low attendance. Approximately 20 percent of the blood donations in Georgia come from students! With the students gone, it is difficult to replace these donations which typically results in blood shortages.

Walk-ins are welcome, but priority is given to individuals who make appointments online at www.redcrossblood.org, using sponsor code "gatech."
