Blood Drive Is Friday

WATER VALLEY – Mississippi Blood Services (MBS) has scheduled a community blood drive with Larson’s Cash Saver in Water Valley on Friday, March 16, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. The MBS Donor Coach will be set up in the grocery store parking lot. Donors will receive a limited edition green T-shirt (while supplies last).

Every day there are those Mississippians who wake up thinking all is well with their world only to be in an accident. Every day parents take their children to the doctor thinking it’s just a cold only to be given the diagnosis of a catastrophic illness. Every day patients in Mississippi find themselves depending on strangers like you to provide the blood they need to survive. Please give these patients the fighting chance they need. Please donate blood. Because one day, it may be you or someone you love who needs blood.

Donating blood is safe, simple and it saves lives. Donors must be at least 16 years old (16-year-olds need signed parental consent, visit the MBS Website for a copy of the form), weigh at least 110 pounds and have a valid ID. You can also learn more or call (888) 90-BLOOD (902-5663). You can also visit the MBS Facebook page at and follow MSblood services on Twitter. Download the free MBS app for your smartphone and/or tablet and keep up with all things MBS! #Give1Save3.
