The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive at the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce on Monday, July 2. Donors will receive a free t-shirt.
There is an urgent need for types O negative and positive, B negative and A negative donors.
Blood donations are down in the first five months of 2012 compared to the same period last year. And, there is only about half the amount of readily available blood in the Red Cross inventory at this time.
