HATTIESBURG, MISS. - United Blood Services has been busy this past week, and it does not look like that will change in the near future. Recently, United Blood Services launched a new campaign and they're asking for more Pine Belt residents to come out and give the gift of life.
"We have a really special promotion that we are doing through the end of February for our donors. All through this month tell March 1, donors will receive a really cool pair of socks... it's got the blood types on both sides,” Donor Recruitment Supervisor for United Blood, Katie Martin said. “So, we are just trying to do different things to incentivize our donors to come out and support patient needs, because ultimately when you get to come in and donate blood you get to kick back relax and impact patients right here in our area."
