Magnolia encourages blood donations with free admission coupon
6/2/2015 12:29:41 PM

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is partnering with the American Red Cross to encourage blood donations in June by offering free admission to America’s oldest garden.

Give blood or attempt to give blood at an American Red Cross blood drive or donation center in the tri-county area to receive a coupon that can be redeemed before July 31. The free admission is not valid in conjunction with other discounts to Magnolia.

Krystal Overmyer, an external communications manager with the agency’s Columbia office, said, “It’s always difficult to collect enough blood to meet hospital demands, especially in the summer months. We think this opportunity will give donors an extra incentive to give blood and ultimately the gift of life to patients in need.”

The American Red Cross has a goal to receive blood from 2,200 donors in June, said Patrick K. Lamontagne , the agency’s donor recruitment manager in North Charleston. All presenting blood donors will receive a coupon, he said.

There are opportunities to donate blood in June at 60 blood drives in the tri-county area and at donation centers in Mount Pleasant and West Ashley. To make an appointment to donate blood, call 1-800-RED CROSS, visit or download the Red Cross Blood Donor App.
