Local blood banks are looking for some help for the holidays, and the bank in Meridian is looking for some specific help.

United Blood Services in Meridian say they have a specific need for platelets. It takes a little longer to donate platelets, but because of the short shelf life it is important to keep donations coming in.

Platelet donations can help cancer patients and others in need at area hospitals. The donation center at Bonita Lakes Circle is open 7 days a week.

There will be a blood drive in Enterprise Monday from 10AM to 3PM. All blood types are needed, and there will be a drawing for a 400 dollar gift certificate for all donors.

The drive will be in the blood mobile outside the Enterprise Clinic.
