From our Quality of Life Committee Chair Robbie Hunter:
The community blood drive was a success! Thank you to my Blood Drive Planning Team and to Thursday's Red Cross donation staff!! I'd like to especially thank Lady Precious Early and the Community Church of God for ordering the much needed outdoor blood drive banners and for providing a donation site. I'd also like to thank Atlanta City Councilmembers Kecia Waites and Jason Dozier and Deborah Scott, Director of Georgia Standup for their monetary support. Thanks to The Sickle Cell Foundation, The People's Agenda-Voter Education, and the Outdoor Activity Center. They all set up vendor tables and educated the community on Thursday as well. Please view pictures of the event that are attached to this email.
BLOOD DRIVE DATA
- Total Donors* - 26
- Units Collected - 18

*Five donors were SW Atlanta residents who were simply looking for a donation site nearby and expressed appreciation for us providing the service.
LET'S DO IT AGAIN!
Since September is Sickle Cell Awareness month we are strongly considering September for a 2nd blood drive.
