Blood donations at the Medical Center are always important, but they're never more welcome than during the holidays.

According to Renee Howard, administrative assistant in clinical lab administration who organizes UMMC's quarterly blood drives, donating blood is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

“We would like to encourage every eligible donor to find the time to donate during this holiday season,” Howard said.

Medical Center faculty, staff and students will have the opportunity to show their giving spirit during Mississippi Blood Services blood drive at several UMMC locations Dec. 14-18.

All donors will receive an MBS T-shirt. Identification is required to donate blood.
