As part of the nurses give back day during hospital week, Colleton Medical Center (CMC) team members rolled up their sleeves to donate blood on May 11.
In addition to impacting 51 lives with blood donation, CMC raised $420 for the Friends of Colleton County Animal Shelter and the work they do daily to protect and care for at-risk pets in Colleton County.
Hospital Leadership also challenged each unit to collect food and supplies for the animal shelter as a friendly pounds-per-person interdepartmental competition. And Team Colleton showed up with over 1,000 pounds of food and supplies for the shelter.
“Care Like Family is something we do every day at Colleton Medical Center and that means caring for our community outside of the facility walls as well,” said Missy Feather, Colleton Medical Center’s CNO. “This combined blood drive and food/supply drive for the animal shelter is an expression of the love and compassion our team has for the people and pets of our community.”
