WPDE and Red Cross host blood drive

WPDE and the Red Cross hold a blood drive.

WPDE NewsChannel 15 and the American Red Cross are joining forces for a blood drive in three locations Wednesday, July 20th.

You can help give the gift of life.

The American Red Cross is facing a critical blood shortage in our region.

Donations often go down this time of year because people are busy traveling. But the Red Cross says donations in May and June dropped to the lowest levels it's seen during this time in more than a dozen years.

Between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. you can find us at:

Grand Strand Regional Medical Center at HealthFinders

Coastal Grand Mall

2000 Coastal Grand Circle

Myrtle Beach

University Baptist Church

1740 Highway 501 East


Magnolia Mall

Best Buy Court

2701 David H. McLeod Blvd.


All presenting donors will receive an American Red Cross T-shirt and may enter a drawing for the chance to win a $3,000 gift card through the Red Cross "Super Summer Save" promotion!

The Red Cross says blood type O-negative is most needed.
