Local & National Blood Shortage


Right now, there is less than a half-day supply of o-negative blood, the universal donor. Less than 7% of the population has this blood type! You can help combat the shortage by signing up today! The Blood Connection is the blood supplier for Colleton Fire-Rescue, Colleton Medical Center, and CARE Flight - this means donations remain local and save local lives at the Colleton Medical Center! 

Save THREE lives when YOU donate blood with the Colleton Sheriff’s Office and The Blood Connection at 394 Mable T. Willis Blvd., Walterboro, on Thurs., August 18, from 9 am – 2 pm inside the Colleton Sheriff’s Office training room. We look forward to seeing YOU there!

For all approved donors, $20 is given to CCSO School Resource Officers to purchase school supplies for Colleton Schools.

Appointments are encouraged to ensure donors receive the best customer service; however, walk-ups are welcome. To make an appointment.
