According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. That’s more than 38,000 blood donations needed every day. The only source of blood is volunteer blood donations. A single blood donation can save up to three lives. If every eligible donor donated at least twice a year, there wouldn’t be seasonal blood shortages.
In response to this ongoing need, CMC hosts community blood drives throughout the year.
As long as you are healthy, weigh at least 110 pounds and are 17 years or older, you can give blood every 56 days.
Walk-Ins are welcome but appointments are honored first. To schedule an appointment, please go online to www.redcrossblood.org. For more information, please contact Kim Litton at 843-347-8035.
Blood drives are held on the Conway Medical Center campus in the auditorium located in the Administrative Service Building.
