UBS pledges to offset blood shortages

By Staff

Current blood levels in the Meridian and Lauderdale County area continue to dwindle, and United Blood Services reports a back-up supply that is virtually depleted.
Given the potentially life-threatening nature of the shortage and concerns regarding the possibility of hospital cancellation of surgeries, UBS asks people to help by giving blood.
A special "Scrub for Blood" event has been slated for 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Friday at the blood center at 1115 25th Ave. Blood donors will be treated to a free car wash and T-shirt; hot dogs and soft drinks also will be provided.
