WLOX, Red Cross team up for holiday blood drive

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Blood banks are always in need of donations during the holidays. That's why WLOX teams up with the American Red Cross every year for a holiday blood drive.

More than 120 people donated life-saving blood Thursday at Edgewater Mall.

If you missed out today, it's not too late to give the gift of life. The blood drive will continue Friday at Edgewater Mall in Biloxi from noon to 6 p.m.

Everyone who gives blood will be entered to win a pair of Sugar Bowl tickets. This year, the Oklahoma Sooners will take on the Auburn Tigers at the New Orleans Superdome. That game will be played Monday, Jan. 2.

Denise Smith, with the Red Cross, said two winners will be drawn between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday. You do not have to be present to win.
