HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Based in part on the success of the past two free lunch for donors blood drives at United Blood Services of Hattiesburg, the center will hold the event again Friday.

Free lunch from Lenny's Sub Shop was offered to donors Wednesday and following that a special blood drive was held for Mike Rose, the Hattiesburg business man who was seriously injured in an automobile accident earlier this month. More than 80 people turned out to give blood.

Friday the center is offering free lunch once again.  This time courtesy of Backyard Burgers of Hattiesburg.  Donors will also receive a free watermelon, free tee-shirt and will be entered into the monthly drawing for a free Disney vacation.

Hours for the free lunch Friday are from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

United Blood Service is located at 805 South 28th Avenue in Hattiesburg.
