Help meet our community’s demand for blood by donating during either of two upcoming blood drives hosted by Tidelands Health in March.
The first blood drive will be on Thursday, March 8, from 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at the Willbrook Service Center, 160 Willbrook Boulevard in Pawleys Island.
The second blood drive will take place the following day on Friday, March 9, at Tidelands Waccamaw Community Hospital.
Members of the community can donate blood from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Tidelands Health Conference Center on Riverwood Drive across from the hospital and in the hospital's first-floor classroom.
