The Shelby County Sheriff's Department is hosting a blood drive from 10 to 2:30 today. A donor coach from Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center will be located at the sheriff's office. Ann Blackwell says t-shirts and snacks are being provided, and anyone 17-year of age is invited to roll up their sleeve and give the gift of life. She added holiday weekends always increase the need so please come by and give so that others might live. If you'd like to set up an appointment to donate, call Ms. Blackwell at 590-9126, or Danielle Almaraz at the sheriff’s office, 598-5601.
