The Jay's HOPE Foundation hosted a bone marrow donor drive today on the campus of Central Georgia Technical College from 12 to 4 p.m.
 
Volunteers helped sign up possible donors by taking cheek swab samples and having them fill out paperwork.

"Well, I've donated blood in the past.  I have also donated platelets, and I feel like it's a minimally-invasive way to give back to those people who are not healthy at the moment, in a way that I'm pretty healthy.  If there is something that I can do that can add to the good karma in life, I think that's important," Bonnie Quinn said.

Thousands of people with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma depend on bone marrow matches to help save their life.
