JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Jones County Junior College and United Blood Services hosted a blood drive on campus Wednesday.
Since summer months tend to lead to lower blood donations, the college helps out with a campus-wide drive.
To get donors pumped about donating blood, UBS is giving away big prizes. Those who donated blood will be entered to win a dream vacation to the destination on their choice.
"For all of our donors that donate in the month of June, July or August, their name is going in for a $6,000 dream vacation," said UBS Senior Donor Recruitment Representative Beverly Clark. "Also we did not want to leave out our younger donors, so donors sixteen years of age to twenty, their name will be going in for the new Apple watch that all of the young people are really excited about."
