The American Red Cross now has competition in the Lowcountry. Upstate-based blood center The Blood Connection now offers mobile blood collection buses seven days a week and has opened a blood center at 5870 Core Road in North Charleston , open weekdays 7 am to 7 pm and weekends 7 am to 5 pm. A mobile unit was hosted Saturday at Brukes Coffee and Music in West Ashley.

The operation was incredibly efficient. The vital sign checks and questionnaire were administered quickly by a friendly staff member. I was in and out in less than 35 minutes. During the month of February, donors are receiving $20 in VISA gift cards.

The blood center will soon expand from three mobile collection units to seven. Businesses, non-profits and churches wishing to host a mobile blood drive are encouraged to contact The Blood Connection. Brukes plans to host Saturday blood drives about every three months.
