Cordele area blood drive set for Tuesday, April 14

The American Red Cross is conducting a community blood drive on Tuesday, April 14 from 1-6 p.m. Local Red Cross advocate Jack Windham said the need for blood donations of all types is urgent in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The drive will be held at the Community Clubhouse located at 108 15th Ave. Sponsored by the Lions Club, all donors will receive a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.

No appointment is necessary, but you can easily make one by visiting www.redcrossblood.org and entering the sponsor code “corcomm,” or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.
