More Planned After Successful Blood Drive

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - There was a good turn out at the sugar refinery blood drive in Pooler Wednesday. The drive was so successful, that organizers have more planned for the next few days.

The Florida Georgia Blood Alliance took in 25 units of blood at Wednesday's drive. They said that each unit can save the lives of up to three people, so potentially 75 people could benefit from this one blood drive alone.

If you missed Wednesday's blood drive, it's not too late to donate. Upcoming blood drives will be on the following dates:

Date: Friday, February 29
Time: 10am to 3pm
Location: Port Wentworth Elementary

Date: Friday, February 29
Time: 8am to 1pm
Location: Merrill Lynch on Hodgson Memorial Drive
