For the past several days AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio has told you about the critical need for blood in our area.  For the third time this summer, Blood Assurance has reached a critical level in the supply of blood available to local hospitals. 

Today Blood Assurance will hold a blood drive from 1 PM until 6 PM at Wal Mart in Chattooga County.  Donors must be at least 17 years old or 16 with parental consent, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health.  There is no age limit on blood donors.
