The first blood drive of the new year will be held Jan. 16 from 1-7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church.
“If you have never donated before, this is the perfect time to give it a try,” said coordinator Norma Weeks. “If you are not sure if you can give blood, please come in and talk to the nurses.” Those who are in reasonably good health and not taking antibiotics or blood thinners are generally approved to donate. Blood pressure, cholesterol and other common medications are not a consideration.
“We have such a low turnout in Walterboro, I would like to have a better year in 2017,” Weeks said. “So please come in and donate and help save lives.”
