A Drop of Blood Makes a Difference

Did you know that…

  • Every 8 minutes someone in our community needs a blood transfusion.
  • We need 350 pints of blood a day to meet the needs of our community hospitals. That’s a lot.
  • One pint of blood can be separated into red blood cells, platelets, and plasma, and can save up to three lives.

Sixty percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, yet only 5% of eligible donors do (3% of the entire population).

The Georgia-Florida Blood Alliance provides every drop of blood to our local hospitals and those who are in need, and now they need your help.

On July 6, 2009 between the hours of 12PM and 2PM the Kingsland Welcome Center will be hosting a blood drive.

The Kingsland Welcome Center encourages all healthy, area residents age 18 and older, to participate in a blood drive sponsored by the Kingsland Welcome Center Employees. The Bloodmobile will be in the Kingsland Welcome Center Parking Lot at 1190 East Boone Avenue, Kingsland.
A picture ID is required. Donations take about an hour and can be made every 56 days.

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, call 912-729-5999 or email Frank@VisitKingsland.com.
