HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Just last week our marketing team met with the United Blood Services here at the station to work on our joint promotion, the Blood Bowl Bash. While the event is not scheduled until late July, Katie Martin from donor recruitment expressed their urgent need for donations. They typically see an increased need for blood during the summer, but right now they specifically need Type O. Appointments can be scheduled at bloodhero.com, by calling United Blood Services toll free at 1-877-UBS-HERO, or you can just walk in at 805 South 28th Avenue. Katie and her team would like to thank everyone in our area for the continued support.
