STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – United Blood Services kicked off a week-long blood drive Sunday afternoon in Starkville.

USB bloodmobiles will be located in several locations throughout Starkville and on Mississippi State’s campus. A total of nine blood drives will be held in the next six days. The event’s theme is “I Bleed Maroon” and is a call-to-action for students and locals to donate blood.

“We think there’s a possibility of getting 250 pints of blood when this is all said and done this week, which would be a quarter of the blood supply that United Blood Services needs for the month of April to supply our hospital,” says Caroline Pugh, head of Donor Recruitment with USB.

Donors must also be at least 16 years old, weigh 110 lbs and be in good health. For more information, call 662-321-9988 or email Caroline Pugh at cpugh@bloodsystems.org.
