WestCare Georgia’s Prevention Outreach Team is all about providing health related street and community outreach. In the month of March, we hosted a blood drive sponsored by LifeSouth Blood Centers. There is a national blood shortage that is affecting our communities, and we wanted to inspire people of our community to give blood that could save a life in our community. We made this a community event by having a variety of vendors, music, and free HIV and Hepatitis C testing. The event was a success as we were able to enlighten the community on the importance of donating blood and saving lives. The participants, vendors, community residents, and staff enjoyed themselves, and we cannot wait to do it again!
