TUPELO - Vitalant will be rocking today as it hosts its annual summer blood donation drive.

From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Eason Boulevard Vitalant Donation Center, formerly United Blood Services, will invite blood donors to rock and roll up their sleeves for its Elvis-inspired event.

All donors will receive a Rock & Roll T-shirt, a $25 Amazon gift card through its online reward program and a McAlister’s coupon. Donors also are eligible for prize drawings.

Because donations traditionally decline 20 percent during the summer, the event helps avoid shortages. Donors must be 16 or older, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health.

Appointment can be scheduled at vitalant.org or call (877) 258-4825. Donors can save about 20 minutes by completing their Fast Track Health History the day they donate. It’s at vitalant.org.
