First United Methodist Church and the Barnesville Rotary Club will host the first local blood drive of the year Jan. 25 from 1-6 p.m. at the church fellowship hall.
“We are currently in an emergency blood shortage. Nationwide, we have seen the lowest number of blood donors in the last 20 years. We need over 50 donors to meet our goal for this drive. Anyone that has ever needed blood or had a family member who needed blood understands how precious it is,” event chair Charles Glass said.
Doors will get to feast on homemade cookies after their donation and will automatically be entered to win a all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas for Super Bowl LCIII. For more information, call 770.358.1494.
