Media for Red Cross Blood Drives

WXXV is partnering with the American Red Cross as part of the Media for Red Cross Blood Drives taking place at multiple locations across the Coast this week.

Today, blood drives were held in Pass Christian until 5 p.m. and in Pascagoula until 6 p.m.

Additionally, more blood drives will be held at Edgewater Mall on Tuesday and Wednesday from noon to 7 p.m. both days.

Type O blood is especially needed during this time and is the most needed blood group for hospitals.

To make an appointment to donate, you can visit redcrossblood.org, download the Red Cross Blood Donor app, or call 1-800-Red-Cross. You can also use the sponsor code ‘Gulf Coast’ when registering.
