Remember when donating blood used to be cool?

It still is…we’ve heard all the cool kids (older than 16) are doing it. To all the parents who made it through the summer, high five! You did it! Now it’s that time of year when your little ones go back to school, which means you may have a tad more time on your hands. Let’s put that time to good use!

Don’t miss The Blood Connection’s Back to School Promotion at our donation centers all over the Carolinas. For South Carolina folks, we’re helping you take advantage of the tax free weekend (Aug 2-Aug 5).

TBC wants to help pay for those last minute school supplies!
Donate blood
August 2-August 4 at any TBC Donation Center and receive a $20 Walmart gift card or contribute that amount to the United Way School Tools Fund!

Local blood donations are especially important during the summer where TBC typically sees a dip in donor turnout. During this time, our donors tend to be very busy finishing out the summer and we understand that blood donation may not be at the front of everyone’s mind. But the demand for blood never stops. That’s why our blood donors are essential to saving lives this week. Be the difference for someone in your community!

Centers are open M-F 7-7pm and on the weekends 7-5pm. Blood donors must be healthy, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years old or 16 with written parental consent. Donors must bring a valid photo ID.
