HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Hattiesburg is holding a Special Blood Drive on Saturday, February 14 at 10 A.M.

The blood drive is to benefit Sara Wittwer. Sara is a 3 year old B-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia patient and the first 25 units of blood will go directly to her. Sarah's donor code is D182

The rest of the blood will be donated to a hospital. They're hoping to receive at least 100 units of blood for Saturday.

Mississippi Blood Services suggest “eating a good meal four hours prior to donating blood, and also to drink plenty of fluids before and after donating. “
