The American Red Cross South Carolina Blood Services Region provides lifesaving blood to patients in 54 hospitals in South Carolina and east central Georgia, including Augusta and surrounding areas. To meet current patient needs in the region, the Red Cross must collect approximately 500 units of blood each day.
Since May 2000, Bishop Gadsden has sponsored 22 blood drives for the American Red Cross. Through the generous donations of resident and employees, 413 pints of blood have been collected. Each pint saves three people’s lives. Through Bishop Gadsden’s many blood drives, we have become a vital link between the American Red Cross’ blood supply and patients who are in need. Thank you to all residents and employees who have donated in previous years, you are all a vital component to Bishop Gadsden’s reputation and success!
