BOONEVILLE, Miss. ( WTVA ) - Vitalant and Northeast Mississippi Community College's Iota Zeta chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society once again teamed up for the annual Spring Blood Drive Wednesday morning at the Haney Union in Booneville.
Blood donation provider Vitalant has seen a significant increase in blood usage at area hospitals.
Coupled with fewer mobile blood drives than normal due to the pandemic and decreased high school and college blood drive events, the provider is urging local citizens to donate blood as soon as they can.
For COVID-19 safety reasons, appointments are encouraged and masks are required.
Schedule your donation by calling 877-258-4825.
WTVA spoke with Phi Theta Kappa advisor Andrea Mathis. Watch the interview in the video above.
