HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - One of the most popular excuses not to donate blood is that lack of convenience. United Blood Services is eliminating that excuse by bringing out their mobile unit for the holiday season. The gift of blood could possibly save a life, including the life of friends, family, or an associate.
"One thing I want our (audience) to remember, our patients never have a holiday, says Beverly Clark, senior donor recruitment representative for United Blood Services. "Their blood needs are 24/7. And right this morning we were not able to fill all our orders of type O blood, O negative especially. So we do need those donors to come in today if not on Friday."
The United Blood Services Center on 28th avenue will be open Black Friday from 8am until 4pm.
