The Blood Connection has an URGENT need for convalescent plasma. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies or have recovered from the virus, please donate convalescent plasma to help others fight the virus. Donors can go to this link to make an appointment: thebloodconnection.org/ccp.
Amid COVID-19 concerns, The Blood Connection has taken extra safety precautions to make sure its facilities are clean places to donate blood. According to local officials, donating blood is an essential civic duty. Local hospitals are still in need of blood products to help their patients.
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.
TBC helps save lives every day; when blood is needed, it’s there thanks to loyal blood donors. 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.

AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE - The Blood Connection AND Charleston.com (The City Site)Quite a serendipitous series of events today - As I was trying to find the Blood Connection "donation site" today, I kept searching for a phone number and found Charleston.com. I am NOT electronically-savvy, to say the least, and would much prefer to speak to a human being, rather than being at the mercy of an automated robot. Robert answered within a couple of rings - and was able to assist my search promptly - and was so kind to me. I appreciate the outstanding customer experiences that I have had with both, The Blood Connection, and Charleston.com. Older adults, such as myself, appreciate speaking with representatives who are engaged, patient and courteous. KUDOS to both organizations and their staff members!
