The excitement for the upcoming season is at an all-time high. The Ole Miss Rebels are working hard preparing to do battle on the gridiron this fall as fans excitedly await for the first kickoff. Get ready for the season by remembering to support your state by donating blood with Mississippi Blood Services (MBS), the sole provider of blood and blood products for the University of Mississippi Medical Center and Batson’s Children’s Hospital.
Mississippi Blood Services is the only blood service headquartered in Mississippi and it has a goal of fully meeting the blood needs of its 50+ partner hospitals.
To help get football fans pumped for the upcoming season, MBS is holding the Blood Drive Blitz campaign from Aug. 1-21, 2014. All donors will be registered for a chance to win a football getaway trip. Ole Miss fans can win a 3 day/2 night trip to Atlanta to see the Rebels kickoff the season against Boise State on Aug. 28. Hotel stay, tickets and gas are included.
As of Aug. 11, MBS is offering a special navy “Fins-Up” t-shirt to donors at selected drives while supplies last.
Contact MBS at 601-981-3232 or visit MSBLOOD.COM to find a local drive. When donating be sure to let staff members know the donation is for Ole Miss. There will be a friendly competition between the other universities in the state to see which fan base can save the most lives by Aug. 21! Join the drive and show other schools that Ole Miss is a winner on and off the field in 2014.
