The Dawson County government and LifeSouth Community Blood Centers will host a blood drive outside of the Dawson County Courthouse from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Jan. 13.
The bloodmobile will be at the lower parking lot of the courthouse, which is located at 25 Justice Way, Dawsonville, GA 30534.
This event is open to the public. Walk-ins are welcome, or you can sign up online at: https://donors.lifesouth.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/751052
Dawson County’s government hosts employee and community blood drives at least twice a year in mid-January and in the fall around the time of the annual Dawson County Employee Health Fair, Public Affairs Officer Laura Fulcher said.
Additional drives may also be held in June or July if the local need for blood is high.
