Cookeville Blood Assurance and DeKalb County Clerk James L. (Jimmy) Poss are teaming up again for another “DeKalb County Neighbors Helping Neighbors” blood drive and several elected and appointed county officials are joining the effort in support of local senior citizens centers.
The blood drive is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21 from 11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the county complex senior citizens center inside the bloodmobile and for every blood donation collected, these county officials will donate $2.00 to the senior citizens centers to be divided equally between the Smithville and Alexandria Centers.
“I have received commitments from Assessor of Property Shannon Cantrell, Trustee Sean Driver, Register of Deeds Jeff McMillen, Road Supervisor Butch Agee, Circuit Court Clerk Katherine Pack, County Mayor Tim Stribling, Sheriff Patrick Ray, and General Sessions Judge Bratten Cook, II along with Clerk and Master Deborah Malone and Administrator of Elections Dennis Stanley,” said County Clerk Poss.
“All blood collected from the Cookeville Blood Assurance Center will supply the needs of hospitals in our communities first including DeKalb, Cannon, Smith, Wilson, White, Putnam, Warren, Jackson, and Overton Counties,” Poss continued.
