Cedartown Food Drive and Blood Drive May 2018

Cedartown Plant Blood Drive March 2018

Our Cedartown Plant had a blood drive on March 8th and we had 20 team members donate blood.  A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components (red cells, platelets and plasma) which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.

Advance collected toys and money donations for the local Boys & Girls Club in Cedartown, GA.  Boys & Girls Clubs works to save and change the lives of children and teens, especially those who need us most, by providing a safe, positive and engaging environment.
