HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Hancock County residents have a chance to "Be Somebody's Hero." It's the 27th annual Media for Red Cross Blood Drive.

The event, which includes snacks and prizes for donors, is being held at Hollywood Casino in Bay St. Louis.

The three-day event kicked off yesterday in Biloxi. Nearly 300 pints of blood were collected.

The blood drive will take place from noon until 7 p.m. today. Tomorrow, a drive will be held at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Jackson County Campus from noon until 7 p.m.

Tonight on WLOX News at 6 p.m., Al Showers will introduce you to a woman who donates blood several times a year.
