NewsChannel 15 blood drive a success

Donors give at Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach/Aaron Varnam

Thanks to our donors, the three blood drives in our area exceeded the goal for blood donations.

Our goal for all three locations was 235 units, and we collected 244 units. Thank you to everyone who came out to give!

Your help is still needed. The blood supply is at a critically low level, lower than it's been in about 12 years.

You can find a blood drive or make an appointment at a blood donation center by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or going to the American Red Cross website.
