American Red Cross Blood Drives in Calhoun County
A couple of American Red Cross blood drives give local residents in Anniston and Oxford the opportunity to donate blood, today. One of the drives was hosted by the Calhoun County Commission office. The goal for that drive was 19 units and Red Cross officials say they exceeded their goal. The other drive was hosted by students at Oxford High School. According to participants, some of them were nervous at first, but they calmed down after thinking about the people who would benefit from their act of generosity. There will be two more opportunities to donate blood this week. The Red Cross will hold a drive at Quintard Mall tomorrow from noon until 6:00PM and then again on Friday, at Anniston High School from 9:30AM until 2:00PM.
