Mount Pleasant, South Carolina – Since the start of the pandemic, South Carolina is facing low blood supply units and the American Red Cross is constantly working on organizing blood donation events.
According to them, the American Red Cross teams up with East Cooper Medical Center and they announced community blood drive set to take place next week in Mount Pleasant.
