BATON ROUGE - It's not the usual life-changing event Ashley Manor Catering and Reception Center is used to holding, but all day Thursday, the event center will be playing host to a blood donation drive to help re-fill the dwindling supply of blood in the area.

"Our community is in need of blood donations due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during the COVID-19 pandemic," organizers said of the event that goes from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Thursday (August 20).  Click HERE for a Facebook post with donation information.

Ashley Manor is located at 14214 Old Hammond Hwy Baton Rouge, LA 70816.

Blood donors will receive a free gourmet to-go meal from Ashley Manor and a t-shirt.  The donation drive is also organized by Our Lady of the Lake.
