Community Blood Drive

Morgan County Board of Education partners with American Red Cross to host community blood drive.


Morgan County High School will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on April 16th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Morgan County High School auxiliary gym. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for blood donations has increased. This drive will be different in that additional precautions will be taken to keep volunteers and donors safe. Walk-in donations cannot be taken. Only pre registered donors will be accepted.


For more information or to make an appointment to donate, call 706-752-4900 or sign up online at redcrossblood.org.


The Morgan County Charter School System is committed to strengthening our community and helping meet hospital and patient needs through blood donations particularly during this unprecedented time," said Superintendent Dr. James Woodard. "This blood drive is our way of giving staff, colleagues and neighbors an opportunity to help save lives."


Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross.


"We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There's no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life."


According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative.
