Community Blood Center Announces Blood Emergency

The Community Blood Center has announced a blood emergency for the area. The blood emergency comes as a result of the recent extreme cold weather and other factors which have contributed to lower blood donations.

There will be several opportunities for donors to give blood to help out with the emergency. The National Honor Society of Albany is sponsoring a Blood Drive Thursday, January 18th,  from noon to 6 p.m. at the Albany Community Center. Walk-ins will be greatly appreciated.

Other locations providing blood donation opportunities are listed with this story on
