PRESS RELEASE - for immediate release

In addition to the great programs and demonstrations already publicized about the Health & Wellness Expo on Wednesday, Oct 24th at the Georgia Mountain Center, please note Red Cross Activities:

The American Red Cross will be holding a blood drive from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call Cheryl Vandiver or Beverly Walker (770-532-8453) to schedule an appointment. Weather radios donated to the Red Cross by Jackson EMC will be given to the 1st 25 blood donors. If you are in a civic organization, having a number of your members schedule a time and donating blood would be a quick and easy community project.

Also Red Cross will be demonstrating the operation of an Automated External (AED) Defibrillator.

A brief presentation on the proper way to administer CPR to infants, children and adults will be offered throughout the day.

The Red Cross booth will also have a display showing items that are needed for an Emergency Preparedness kit.

Also, Jackson EMC and the Red Cross will be giving Weather Radios to 50 lucky attendees on Wednesday.
