The LifeSouth blood drive will be in Dawsonville until Jan. 18. The first drive successfully ran Tuesday, Jan. 7 at the Dawson County Courthouse on Shoal Creek Road.
LifeSouth, which is based in Gainesville, Florida, is a community-oriented blood center that has 28 locations across Florida, Georgia and Alabama. In each of those communities, blood donated goes to local hospitals to help save local lives.
Both Northside and Northeast Georgia Medical Center use blood from LifeSouth.
Over the next two weeks, LifeSouth will be at Chick-fil-a on Power Center Drive in Dawsonville on Friday, Jan. 10 and at Unseen Hands Ministries on Saturday, Jan. 18.
