Atrium Health Navicent Peach to Host “Holiday Heroes” Blood Drive

To help meet the need for donated blood, Atrium Health Navicent Peach is hosting a “Holiday Heroes” blood drive in partnership with the American Red Cross on Tuesday, July 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Donors are asked to schedule an appointment at RedCrossBlood.org and use the sponsor code “HEROES.” The blood drive will be held in the outpatient waiting area inside the hospital, located at 1960 Highway 247 Connector in Byron.

“Hospitals often see higher numbers of injured patients in the days surrounding summer holidays and this event is an opportunity for each of us to be a “hero” in helping to replenish donor blood supplies,” said Atrium Health Navicent Peach CEO Laura Gentry.
