Ole Miss Football Leading Charge for Mississippi Blood Services
April 12, 2017

OXFORD, Miss. – With local blood banks at an all-time low, the Ole Miss football team is partnering with Mississippi Blood Services to strengthen reserves for the Oxford-University community. 

Rebel players and staff will participate in and help host a blood drive Monday through Wednesday (April 17-19) between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the Courtyard by Marriott Oxford at 306 Jackson Avenue East. Donors will receive a t-shirt.

“As a program, we always want to do our part to help those in need in the community,” said Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze. “After hearing from MBS, we saw this as an opportunity to make an impact with a lot of people in North Mississippi. We encourage everyone who is able to join us in replenishing the blood bank.” 

Donors must bring an ID and are encouraged to eat at least four hours within giving blood and drink plenty of fluids before and after making a donation. For questions, contact MBS at msblood.com or 888-90-BLOOD.
