Donors get "groovy" and give blood

FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

FOX 40 and Mississippi Blood Services kicked off the "Flashback to the 70's" Blood Drive Wednesday.

Blood donations are often low during the month of May, as school begins to let out and people get busy planning vacations and enjoying the beautiful weather.

The 1970's themed campaign is a way to build a little extra excitement around giving blood.

"This time of year we are critical on all blood types, including platelets," said Merle Eldridge, Mississippi Blood Services PR/Communications Manager. "So, we go that extra mile to make sure we give an incentive to those donors to come out and give".

All donors will receive a special “Peace Love & Donate” t-shirt. 

The blood drive will be held through Wednesday, May 11th through Friday, May 13th at Mississippi Blood Services, Main Center location (115 Tree Street) in Flowood.  For more details, log on to
