Donors will get a $10 gift card during a blood drive Monday at Walgreens in Corinth from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Blood supplies are extremely low due to the cold weather, according to Mississippi Blood Services.
“Area hospitals are using record amounts of blood and platelets, and we are seeing record low amount of donors,” a news release says. “MBS is urging all donors to donate as soon as possible to help make sure blood is available to Mississippi patients.”
Every two seconds someone needs blood, says MBS, which provides blood for 45 hospitals in the state.
