Shepeard Community Blood Center is in urgent need of local blood donors as summer grows near. Shepeard needs all blood types, but especially O Positive and O Negative donors.
Shepeard has been dealing with a nationwide blood shortage since Covid-19 cases first started appearing in March 2020, and due to the severity of the shortage, they can’t call on other blood centers for help.
The CSRA’s blood supply is supported strictly by the donations of volunteer blood donors.
Shepeard supplies blood to several local hospitals including University Hospital, AU Health, Children’s Hospital of Georgia, and Burke Medical Center. Donations to Shepeard go to help patients in need in the CSRA, and every blood donation can save up to three lives.
Call Shepeard Community Blood Center at 706-737-4551 to schedule an appointment to donate.
