Give the gift of life this season during special holiday blood drive in Myrtle Beach

Give the gift of life during a special holiday blood drive at the new Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market Common in Myrtle Beach.

Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market CommonTidelands Health is partnering with the American Red Cross to host a special holiday blood drive Friday, Dec. 27, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the new Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market Common, 2200 Crow Lane in Myrtle Beach.

Every donor will receive a long-sleeve American Red Cross T-shirt. Donors also are welcome to take a tour of the three-story Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market Common, which opened in September.

Blood donations often decline during the holidays, but the need for blood remains. All blood types are needed. One donation can potentially save up to three lives.

“As you check off your gift list this holiday season, please consider giving the gift of life by donating blood during this special holiday blood drive,” said Jason Self, executive director of Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market Common. “What better gift could you give this holiday season than the gift of life?”

Appointments for blood donations will take priority, but walk-ins are welcome. Donors can schedule an appointment in advance by going to redcrossblood.org and using the sponsor code “Tidelands.”

Blood donors must be healthy, be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds. Bring a valid ID.

Tidelands Health Medical Park at The Market Common brings together a range of practices and specialties under one roof – including family medicine, orthopedics, cardiology, physical therapy and more – to provide highly coordinated care in the fast-growing Myrtle Beach area.
