The Blood Connection was named our February Nonprofit of the Month sponsored by South Atlantic Bank.
The Blood Connection's mission is to support the local healthcare partners with adequate, safe, cost-effective blood supplies and services.
We are proud to partner with The Blood Connection to host community blood drives. We held the first of six in our parking lot last week.
Across our last three blood drives, The Blood Connection was able to collect 43 units helping to save 129 lives in our community.
The five remaining drives are scheduled for April 1, June 3, July 29, Sept. 23 and Nov. 18. Each drive will offer up to 36 appointments, available to anyone who wishes to donate. Participants must register in advance at TheBloodConnection.org/MBACC. Donors will receive a $20 eGift card for participating and all donations will be used locally at one of the four hospitals in the Grand Strand.
We invite you to join us on our journey to Egypt, a nation of biblical proportions and epic history. Experience the fascinating stories of the ancient world as you tour Cairo’s medieval mosques, the gargantuan pyramids of Giza, grandiose Karnak and the Luxor temples, treasures of Tutankhamen’s tomb, and the Valley of the Kings. In the company of an expert Egyptologist guide, cruise the mighty Nile River aboard a first-class vessel and spend 4 nights at a firstclass hotel in cosmopolitan Cairo.
