The Optimist Club of Senoia is set to sponser an American Red Cross blood drive in Senoia on Monday, Nov. 4,

The community drive will be held in the fellowship hall of Senoia United Methodist Church from 1- 6 p.m. in the historic district of Senoia at 229 Bridge Street, at the intersection of Seavy and Bridge Streets.

“You could help save more than one life with just one donation,” said Optimist member Hal Sewell.

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. As the nation’s single largest supplier of blood and blood products, the Red Cross is dedicated to ensuring that every patient who needs a life-saving transfusion is able to receive one. In fact, the Red Cross must collect more than 17,000 pints of blood each day to meet the needs of patients at more than 3,000 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country.

Those who give at the Senoia blood drive will know they have done something to benefit others and in addition, each participant will be rewarded with a gift of special coupons from a number of Senoia businesses. Optimists members plan to serve grilled cheese sandwiches, cookies and juice.

Those who donated at the Optimist Club’s during the last drive were personally notified of upcoming appointments on Nov. 4. Potential donors may sign up online at www.redcrossblood.org or contact member and drive coordinator Ivie Bowman at 678-378-7151.

Donors are again asked to bring one or more non-perishable food item. The Optimist Club members will collect these items and make them available to a local food bank.

Most healthy people age 17 and older or 16 with parental consent, who weigh at least 110 pounds are eligible to donate blood. For more info call 1-800-GIVE LIFE (448-3543) or visit www.redcrossblood.org.
