Monday, September 23, 2013
Georgetown, S.C. – Does your blood run garnet or orange? It’s your chance to tell the community and save a life at Georgetown Memorial Hospital's blood drive Friday, Oct. 4, in the private dining room on the first floor of the hospital.
In a lead-up to the annual Carolina-Clemson football game in November, Georgetown Hospital System is encouraging Carolina and Clemson fans to declare their allegiance and give blood at three upcoming blood drives, beginning with the Oct. 4 drive at GMH. The other two are Oct. 24 at HealthPoint Center for Health and Fitness and Nov. 1 at Waccamaw Community Hospital.
The team with the most donations will be announced after each drive. Every donor’s name will be entered into a drawing for a Carolina and a Clemson tailgate basket that will be awarded the week of the game.
Not a Gamecock or a Tiger fan? No worries; just be a fan for life. The GMH drive will take place from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. All Donors will receive a jar opener and an ice cream or a soda coupon.
Appointments will take priority, but walk-ins are welcome. Appointments can be made by calling 843.527.7173 or going to http://www.redcrossblood.org.
In addition to having a valid ID, blood donors must be healthy, be at least 17 years old and weigh a minimum of 110 pounds.
