Louisville Community ‘Road to Life 6’ Blood Drive set

Life is a journey fraught with detours and roadblocks like illnesses and injuries. Sometimes they become life-threatening – they turn into more than a bump in the road. Blood donors don’t take these “road hazards” away, they just make navigating them possible. Because blood donors do so much, Mississippi Blood Services (MBS) and Howard Wilson Chrysler Jeep Dodge are partnering for Road to Life 6 Blood Drive Promotion. This year donors will be registered for a chance to win a 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The promotion will run from May 22 through July 31, and to commemorate 35 years of saving lives, MBS will draw 35 finalist to try the key at Howard Wilson on August 8. Everyone who donates at an MBS blood drive, draw station or fixed site is automatically entered for a chance to win.
There will be a community blood drive at the Walmart in Louisville on Friday, June 27, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. The MBS Donor Coach will be on site. All donors will receive a free T-shirt and a gift card (while supplies last). Donors will be automatically registered in the Road to Life 6 Jeep Cherokee giveaway. Blood donors can now check their overall cholesterol levels on their MBSConnect Account at www.msblood.com.
“Blood donors are often a crucial part on a patient’s road to recovery,” Todd Sing, MBS Vice President of Donor Systems, said. “They may never meet those patients who received their blood but the very fact blood was available means they helped save those lives.”
Blood donors help countless hospital patients get back on the road to life. MBS is proud to partner once again with Howard Wilson Chrysler Jeep Dodge to put a blood donor in a brand new vehicle.
Donating blood is safe, simple and it saves lives. Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with signed parental consent, visit our Web site for a copy of the form), weigh at least 110 pounds and have a valid ID.
