United Blood Services Annouces Mash BashBy
The Doctors on MASH saved lives and so can you. United Blood Services invites you to give blood at the annual MASH Bash Holiday Blood Drive on December 29, 2009 from 10 am -7 pm at the Temple Theatre ballroom in Meridian.
Come in, dress up like your favorite MASH character and enjoy pizza, coke and MASH movies on the big screen and get a MASH Bash t-shirt. Hourly door prizes will be given away along with a Wii game system and flat screen TV. Also, donors will be entered into a drawing for the “It’s a Wonderful Life, Pass It On” $500 shopping spree.
Blood is always in short supply during the holiday season. Officials with United Blood Services say the blood drive comes at a critical time when blood supply levels are low region wide.
“People should remember there are patients in our hospitals each day who need blood, platelet or plasma transfusions to restore their health. They’re depending on volunteer blood donations to help save their lives and United Blood Services could not provide these products without the many donors who step forward each day to help meet these needs,” said Heather Knight, United Blood Services spokesperson. “Illnesses, accidents and diseases don’t take a holiday and neither can blood donations. We need all eligible donors of all blood types to make time to donate blood, platelets or plasma during this drive!”
United Blood Services is the only provider of blood to hospitals and health centers in East Central Mississippi and West Alabama. Blood donated during this drive will go to help patients in need during the holidays. To make an appointment call (601) 482-2482 or visit us online at www.bloodhero.com.
