Clarkesville, GA- Scovill Fasteners will be hosting a blood drive with the American Red Cross on Monday, January 20th from 10am-2pm. All of the blood donations will be in honor of Mr. Paul Huskey, Cathy Sigmon’s father. Cathy Sigmon is an Executive Assistant at Scovill, and Mr. Huskey has a blood disorder that prevents his body from making normal blood cells. He will have to receive blood transfusions for the rest of his life.
The American Red Cross will provide a card that will be given to Mr. Paul Huskey. Everyone who donates in his honor will be able to sign the card. In addition to the card, a certificate recognizing the amount of blood collected on January 20th on his behalf will be included after the drive is completed.
