Mississippi Blood Services has partnered with Howard Wilson Chrysler Jeep Dodge to sponsor the Road to Life 4 Blood Drive campaign. Everyone who donates blood between May 20 and August 31st will be registered for a chance to win a 2013 Jeep Wrangler XL! Donors across the state and surrounding areas will be automatically registered in the "Road to Life 5" wrangler give away. One fortunate donor will drive home in a new vehicle. Many fortunate hospital patients will get back on the road to life because you gave blood.
"You can save a life just by rolling up your sleeve and donating blood," Tony Bahou, MBS manager of communications and public relations, said. "Donating blood two or three times a year helps keep it available for hospital patients when they need it."
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.
