GA Department of Driver Services (DDS) Commissioner Champions Red Cross Blood Drive

April 24, 2018

GA Department of Driver Services (DDS) recently partnered with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive at the Agency’s headquarters in Conyers, Georgia.  The facility is home to DDS’ administrative offices with approximately 300 team members stationed at the location. 

In five hours, the Red Cross Mobile Bus greeted 38 donors and collected 22 pints of blood – surpassing the DDS established goal of 18 pints!  The Agency’s Human Resources Division coordinated the event by publicizing, registering, and passing out snacks to the donors.

Commissioner Spencer R. Moore was not surprised that the goal was exceeded.  “The DDS Team has shown time after time that they care about each other, our customers, and the community.  This vital contribution speaks to the heart of the Agency – our dedicated Team Members.”

Red Cross reminds us that one pint of blood can save up to three lives. Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood, and more than 36,000 blood donations are needed every day. Find out how to donate by visiting www.redcross.org.
