Mississippi Blood Services and the Watson Quality Home Team have joined together to promote the Road to Life 3 Blood Drive campaign. Everyone who donates blood between now and March 31 will be registered for a chance to win a 2011 Ford Fiesta. One fortunate donor will drive home in a new car. Many fortunate hospital patients will get back on the road to life because you gave blood.
The Oxford Chamber of Commerce Junior Leadership will hold a community blood drive from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Saturday. The MBS Donor Coach will be parked in front of the Oxford Walmart on West Jackson Avenue. The drive challenges Oxford High School and Lafayette High School to see which can raise the most donors. The winning school will get to host their own radio show. All donors will receive a free T-shirt.
All donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with signed parental consent — forms available at drive locations and online), weigh at least 110 pounds and have a valid ID. For more information about the upcoming blood drive, call (800) 817-7449.
