On Friday Trident Medical Center (TMC) will host a blood drive for the community from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. The drive will take place in Café B of TMC. Donors will be entered in a drawing to win a $1,500 gift card; the winner will be announced after March 31.
“The American Red Cross is currently experiencing a reduction in O negative donors,” said Christy Joyner, medical technologist with Trident Health. “Presently, we are at critical levels for all blood types.”
