In order to meet the Thanksgiving holiday blood supply needs, United Blood Services is requesting that eligible blood donors donate blood at the Meridian Community Blood Drive. The blood drive will be held on Friday, November 29th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at United Blood Services, located at 1115 25th Avenue in Meridian; the bloodmobile will be in the parking lot.
If you’re running short on time, you can now take more control of the donation process, by doing your interview online the day of your donation. To do this, log on to www.unitedbloodsystems.org and click on the “Health History Questionnaire”, answer the questionnaire then, print your fast track ticket and bring it with you when come in to donate. Please note: The health history must be completed the same day as the donation.
Additionally, all donors will receive a specially designed black and gold “Everyday Saints Give Blood” t-shirt.
Donors may make an appointment at www.bloodhero.com, using sponsor code meridiancommunity or call 601-264-0743.
