May 25, 2019

FLORENCE, S.C. -- To mark the Memorial Day Holiday, Howe Springs Fire Rescue Saturday will conduct a blood drive with the American Red Cross.

The drive will take place in the training room at the department’s Howe Springs Road station.

The event will run from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and donors can go to www.redcrossblood.org, enter sponsor code HoweSprings, and make an appointment beforehand to ensure a short wait.

“Donating blood is a great to help your community,” according to a release on the event posted to the agency’s Facebook page.

Memorial Day marks the start of the summer travel season, a time when the Red Cross has greater need for donated blood.
