“This is a way for youth to help locally,” says Aga Khan Youth and Sports organization member Sophia Dayani. The group’s Blood and Bone Marrow Drive for American Red Cross held Sunday at the South Jamatkhana worship center on Flat Creek Trail just outside Peachtree City delivered again this year. Donors gave 55 pints of blood and were joined by 32 people that provided cheek-swabs for possible bone marrow donation. “This is giving back to the community to do whatever we can. We hope it will be beneficial,” said organization member Heena Ali. Photo/Ben Nelms.
