‘Road To Life Blood Drive’Will Make Stop In Water Valley

Staff Report


WATER VALLEY–Roll up your sleeve next Tuesday, June 4, for a community blood drive at Yalobusha General Hospital and you could win a brand new Jeep Wrangler.
    The Mississippi Blood Services (MBS) donor coach will roll up at the hospital from noon to 5 p.m. and donors will automatically be registered in the Road to Life 5 Jeep Wrangler give-away. All donors will also receive a free T-shirt and either a WalMart gift card or a movie pass.
    “Mississippi Blood Services is happy to announce the Fifth Annual Road to Life Blood Drive, which is exciting for both MBS and our donors,” Tony Bahou, MBS public relations and communications manager, said. “But it’s even more exciting to know that countless hospital patients are getting back on “The Road to Life” because so many Mississippians care enough to give blood.”
    The Road to Life Blood Drive is sponsored by MBS and Howard Wilson Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
    Donating blood is safe, simple and it saves lives. Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with signed parental consent, visit our Web site for a copy of the form), weigh at least 110 pounds and have a valid ID.
