On Friday, March 14, Trident Medical Center (TMC) will host a blood drive for the community from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The drive will take place in Cafe B of TMC. Donors will be entered in a drawing to win a $1,500 gift card; the winner will be announced after March 31.
"The American Red Cross is currently experiencing a reduction in O negative donors," said Christy Joyner, medical technologist with Trident Health. "Presently, we are at critical levels for all blood types."
To schedule an appointment, please call 1-800-733-2767 or schedule your appointment online: www.redcrossblood.org and enter tridentmed as the sponsor. Walk-ins are welcome but donors with appointments will be taken first.
