There is a critical need for blood! On Monday, November 4, you will have an opportunity to give blood in the Fellowship Hall at the Senoia United Methodist Church from 1 to 6 p.m. This blood drive is co-sponsored by the local church and the Senoia Optimist Club.

The local blood drive hosts will be serving their “famous” grilled cheese sandwiches along with the goodies provided by the American Red Cross. Free coupons associated with several of the Senoia area businesses will also be provided to donors.

Senoia United Methodist Church, 229 Bridge Street, Senoia, Georgia

The Senoia United Methodist Church is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street. It is at the intersection of Seavy and Bridge Streets. For those not familiar with the area, you can turn east at the downtown intersection of Main Street and Seavy Street, and go past Matt’s Smalltown Pizza and the Veranda Bed & Breakfast towards the Seavy Street City Park or State Highway 85. The church is on the right – only about two blocks east of Main Street.

While “walk-ins” are welcome, potential donors may either sign up online at or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

There is a need for all blood types. You are encouraged to please schedule an appointment to donate blood today. If you are unable to give, you are encouraged to notify others who may be able to donate.

The Senoia Area blood drive is held at the Senoia United Methodist Church on a quarterly basis. The events traditionally fall on the first Monday of February, May, August, and November. After the upcoming event on November 4, the next blood drive for the Senoia area and beyond will be February 3.
