Colleton Medical Center is pleased to join forces with The Blood Connection to host a community blood drive on Thursday, October 6, from 10 am to 3 pm.
“With one in seven people who enter a hospital needing a blood transfusion every donation is needed,” said Jimmy Hiott, Colleton Medical Center CEO. “I strongly encourage our community to roll up their sleeves and donate blood. One donation can help up to three people.”
As a community hospital, Colleton Medical Center is excited to partner with a different nonprofit at the quarterly blood drives. For each blood donation on October 6th a $20 donation will be made to In His Name.
Colleton Medical Center will also host a Clemson v. Carolina canned food drive in conjunction with the blood drive. Which fan base will donate the most blood and canned food items on Thursday, October 6?
The blood drive will be held at the Colleton Ambulatory Surgery Center located at 304 Medical Park Drive. Blood donors must be healthy, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years old or 16 with written parental consent. Donors must bring a valid photo ID.
Walk-ins are welcome. Appointments are preferred. Visit thebloodconnection.org/donate or call (864) 255-5000 to make an appointment for the October 6 Blood Drive.
