Durden Banking Company Partnered with American Red Cross to Host Community Blood Drive

Posted on

Twin City, GA – Durden Banking Company hosted a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on February 10, 2021. A total of 19 units was collected during the community blood drive.

“Durden Banking Company is committed to strengthening our community and helping meet hospital and patient needs through blood donations,” said Jim Cowart, City President Twin City. “This blood drive was our way of giving staff, colleagues and neighbors an opportunity to help save lives.”

Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross.

“We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.”

According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
