Stick out a paw and give blood

United Blood Services is going to be back on the Jones County Junior College campus for another blood drive Feb. 27, 28 and March 1. They will be set up in the P.E. Building for blood donations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students, faculty and any other local residents who would like to donate blood may do so during these days.

The first donors will receive a t-shirt, and everyone will receive free snacks. Along with every donation, free cholesterol testing will be available.

A drawing will take place March 31 for a $1,000 Wal-Mart gift card. Names of everyone who donated blood will go in the drawing.

Donors need to bring photo IDs and donor cards.

Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred. To make an appointment online, go to www.bloodhero.com and use the sponsor code, JCJC. Appointments can also be made by contacting Fawn Blackledge at 601-477-4245, Donna Bass at 601-477-4066 or Deborah Cheeks at 601-477-2416.
