Don’t want to shop this Friday? Here are some other options
JACKSON, Tenn. — Lifeline Blood Services is getting ready for donors to take time on Black Friday to give back to the local community. Workers load up buses hoping shoppers will give blood.
“Sometimes things get pushed on the back burner because we’re so busy cooking and shopping, but we really don’t need to forget the most important thing is there are people in the hospitals that still need blood even while we’re celebrating and going on with our festivities,” Hale said.
All blood types are needed, but there are some specific types especially wanted, and those are O positive, O negative, B negative and A negative.
This is the third year for the hikes, and rangers say there’s a hike for all ages and abilities.
