AGS Partners with Shepeard Community Blood Center!
Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) is partnering with Shepeard Community Blood Center to hold a blood drive adjacent to the main terminal building of Augusta Regional Airport on July 12th, from 1:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
The Shepeard Blood Mobile will be located adjacent to the main terminal building, located at 1501 Aviation Way, in the Elite Rewards Parking Lot. Please see attached map for directions.
The first 30 donors will receive a Shepeard travel blanket. All donors will receive points in the Shepeard donor store that can be redeemed for gift cards or T-shirts.
Despite the efforts of blood donation centers over the past few months, centers nationwide are in dire need of blood donations. Summer blood shortages have been compounded in part by the
increased demand for blood products as elective surgeries that were postponed from 2020 are now being scheduled.
Shepeard is the community’s local non-profit blood center that supplies blood products to several local hospitals, including University Hospital, AU Health, and the Children’s Hospital of
Georgia. When you donate with Shepeard, you are truly giving back to your community. Help save up to three local lives.
