Donors Encouraged to Assist with Hurricane Ian Blood Relief

Community Blood Drive Set for October 6th in Myrtle Beach


MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.— Following Hurricane Ian, the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce (MBACC) is encouraging members of the business community and area residents to schedule a blood or platelet donation at their local blood bank.

On average, blood centers only have a one- or two-day supply of blood on hand. Disruptions in blood collection and transportation due to the recent hurricane has created low inventories across the Southeast.


To help replenish local blood supplies, MBACC has teamed up with The Blood Connection of Myrtle Beach to hold a Community Blood Drive on Thursday, Oct. 6, 2022. The drive will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Blood Connection, which is located at 1217 38th Ave. N. in Myrtle Beach.


All blood types are needed, and donors will receive a $20 eGift Card during their appointment. To register in advance, visit TheBloodConnection.org/MBACC.


The Blood Connection is a local nonprofit that relies on community blood donors to provide for local hospitals across the Grand Strand.


WHAT: Community Blood Drive

WHEN: Thursday, Oct. 6, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

WHERE: The Blood Connection, 1217 38th Ave. N. in Myrtle Beach
