Hollow Creek Distillery to host Blood Connection Blood Drive on April 29

Hollow Creek, SC 04/13/2023 - Blood donations remain in critical demand. Every 2 seconds someone in critical need is using blood. On average, only 3% of the US population donate blood, if every eligible person donated blood, it would only take one donation per person to end the shortage.


Blood supplies remain critically low throughout SC. The majority of those in need are patients fighting cancer. Knowing the impact of having family members battle cancer and that their business offers an ideal location for hosting blood drives, Craig & Meredith Amick, founders of Hollow Creek Distillery decided to take action.


Next week, Hollow Creek Distillery is hosting their 4th Blood Connections Mobile Unit as a means of serving the community. The Blood Connection blood drive will be held on Saturday, April 29th from 10am to 3pm. Qualified donors who pre-register will receive a $20 eGift Card PLUS 400 bonus points the equivalent of a $10 Gift Card.


This month, The Blood Connection is recognizing National Pet month. Blood donors have the option of supporting local pet shelters by donating their eGift and bonus points to a local pet shelter.

Visitors are encouraged to visit thebloodconnection.org to set up their appointment to donate. Once on the site, they can search for the drive by location (Hollow Creek Distillery in Leesville), or by sponsor code (7467) and set their appointment online. Drop-ins will also be accommodated.


Additional information can be found on their Facebook event page, https://www.facebook.com/events/906729187008796. Donors must be in good health, at least 17 years old (16 years old with written parental consent), and weigh at least 110 pounds. To determine eligibility to donate The Blood Connection will:


· Ask questions about your health, travel, and medicines.

· Ask questions to determine if you might be at risk for transfusion transmissible diseases.

· Take donor blood pressure and temperature.

· Take a small blood sample to ensure you are not anemic.

· The donation process takes 10 to 15 minutes.
