CRITICAL NEED FOR BLOOD DONATIONS!
The Blood Connection, your community blood center, has a CRITICAL need for any kind of blood donation right now. As the country bounces back from the Coronavirus pandemic, doctors with Lowcountry hospitals say there is a higher demand for blood products, but a shorter supply.
After months of low donor turnout, The Blood Connection is experiencing a shortage like it’s never seen before. The situation could become more dire if members of the community don’t donate. There is no replacement for blood. When you give blood with The Blood Connection, you can save up to three local lives.

Charleston blood donors can donate at TBC’s donation center at 5870 Core Road in North Charleston! The center is open every day.
The Blood Connection has been committed to saving lives since 1962. Founded in Greenville, South Carolina, TBC is an independently managed, not-for-profit, community blood center that provides blood products to more than 70 hospitals within Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. Most recently, the blood center has expanded into Charleston as the primary blood provider for Roper St. Francis Healthcare.
Blood products are used to help cancer patients, trauma patients, those needing emergency surgeries, and patients with blood disorders, to name a few. All of the blood received through donations goes right back into the communities that TBC serves. In locally-driven operations, that means neighbors are helping neighbors. Recognized by the U.S. Congress for its dedication to disaster preparedness and the community, TBC works diligently to collect blood from volunteer donors to meet the ever-increasing demand. By keeping collections local, TBC serves hundreds of thousands of patients a year in its communities. TBC is licensed and regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
