BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -
South Mississippians are getting a chance to give the gift of life, and it doesn't cost a thing to do it. The 30th annual WLOX Red Cross Blood Drive kicked off Thursday, and will be taking donations Friday, and again on Monday.
"Every single one donation of blood can save the lives of up to three different patients. So you do the math and it's a great way to return the investment," said Red Cross Service Account Manager Rhonda Dodge.
Dodge said giving the gift of life is the best gift of all, especially this time of the year.
"So, you've got a peak in need and a drop in the priority of our donors," said Dodge.
The donors in line Thursday had their own reasons to give.
"I don't have the money to help, so I have the blood. So I'm like, I'll help that way," said donor Lynette Mullen.
"Take the time because someday you might need it," said donor Bernard Perry.
"I'm in the medical field. I know how important it is. So, I try to give every chance I get," said donor Jennifer Pepperman.
Pepperman encourages others to donate blood, as well.
"You just have to think about the good you're doing. So, if you can take that pinch, you can help save a life," said Pepperman.
The goal for this year's drive is to collect 535 units of blood. You can give Friday 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., and again Monday from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
