Box 426, Hogansville, Georgia 30230 Red Cross Sets Blood Drive With the sweltering heat outside, the heat is on locally and nationally to increase blood collections to meet the sum- mertime blood needs of hospi- tal patients, according to Red Cross officials. You can be a summertime lifesaver by donating blood on Monday (July 19) at Manchester's First United Methodist Church. The drive will be in the church's Fellowship Hall from 1 until 6 p.m. The summer months pose a challenge to the Red Cross to keep the blood supply at a safe level. Because many regular blood donors are busy with sum- mer activities, the number of people who donate blood decreases dramatically during the summer. Currently, there is an immediate need for all blood types. Types O and B are par- ticularly at a critically low level at this time. To donate blood, one must be 17 years of age or older, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be in general good health. The entire process takes about an hour from registration to refreshments. Donors receive a Red Cross donation card with their blood type.
