Video: Blood Donors in Tupelo get a Little Something ‘Eggs’tra

[jwplatform gGwFAtNN]

TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — The holidays often bring about critical shortages in emergency blood supplies, so one local blood bank is using some holiday treats to encourage donors to come in.

From Monday, April 14th through Saturday, April 19th, donors get a little bonus when they give a pint of blood at United Blood Services in Tupelo: they get to crack open an Easter Egg. Each egg has a number that matches a prize. There are t-shirts, manicure-pedicures, meals from local restaurants, and much more up for grabs.

United Blood Services is located at 4326 South Eason Blvd. in Tupelo. Their phone number is (662) 842-8871.

UBS is open:  Monday and Wednesday: 8AM-4PM/ Tuesday and Thursday: 10AM- 6PM / Friday and Saturday: 8AM – 2PM
