WHAT’S HAPPENING

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood to help them survive. And today scores of employees with the City of Atlanta answered the call to donate. The Department of Human Resources sponsored a blood drive with the American Red Cross in the Old Council Chambers. Also on hand, were representatives from the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, who say that thousands of people in the state suffer from the disease and that blood drives like this are vitally important to save lives.
