MONCKS CORNER, SC — The American Red Cross is in desperate need of blood donors.
The organization usually sees a dip in donations over the summer months with people on vacation, but the blood supply constantly needs to be replenished because donated blood has a limited shelf life.
A Moncks Corner mom is encouraging people to donate blood after her daughters needed countless transfusions to keep them alive.
Four-year-old twins Annalee and Kennedy Garvin are full of energy.
“They are wild from the time they get up to the time they go to bed,” says their mom, Dana.
But, when the girls were born, it was a different story. Both children spent over 100 days in the NICU.
Dana says the girls were born at 26 weeks gestation, receiving around the clock care to keep them alive.
“While in the NICU they both received blood transfusions, and without those blood transfusions I wouldn’t have two healthy little girls sitting right here with me today,” says Dana.
She says their first three years were full of doctors appointments.
"They've had occupational therapists, speech therapists, physical therapists. They've had the works."
After watching her daughters fight for their lives, Dana now donates blood regularly.
“I didn’t even know my blood type until I became pregnant with them. But I’m O-negative which is good, my blood’s universal,” she explains.
With the nationwide blood shortage, Dana encourages her family and friends to donate blood every chance they get.
“You never know who might need that blood. It could be your own sister, brother, mother, father, child. Little babies born a little too early that might need it, somebody in a car accident, you just never know who’s going to need it.”
ABC News 4 has partnered with the American Red Cross for a blood drive. On May 19 you can donate blood from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. at Northwoods mall or from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. at Citadel Mall.
All donors will receive a $10 gift card and be entered to win a travel trailer camper. Use the sponsor code ABCNews4 to schedule an appointment here.

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCBD) – People living in Moncks Corner have been long awaiting the opening of a new Publix shopping center. While the grocery store appears to be ready to open, many are now wondering “what is the holdup?”
“If you live in the area, you are excited about the store coming in. What we’re not excited about is how long it’s taking for it to open,” said Robert Esclavon, who stops by the center occasionally to see its progress.
The 75,000 square-foot Publix at the new Moncks Corner Marketplace was announced about two years ago. Today, things basically look finished – there are grocery carts inside, fixtures in place, and shelves waiting to be stocked. But still, the store sits unopened.
Based on a January 2021 press release, the shopping center was slated for completion in June 2022, with Publix expected to open in fall 2022.
“The few people I run into say it looks like it could be mid-September before it opens. I don’t know if they know what they’re talking about, but for a store that’s complete – except for product on the shelves – it makes you wonder what’s holding it up,” said Esclavon.
Esclavon reached out to News 2 to find out what is going on. Leaders with the Town of Moncks Corner said they are waiting on final approval from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
“Right now, we are just waiting on DHEC to approve the water supply system over there. All the engineering has been done- the water is clear, it’s just a matter of getting everything signed off on the state DHEC office and they’ll be able to start moving in people and supplies,” explained Douglas Polen, Moncks Corner Community Development Director.
One person, who was familiar with the construction project, said they had to wait a few weeks for Berkeley Water and Sanitation to get their water meters installed. That process is now complete, and they have been waiting on DHEC for the past week and a half.
Officials with DHEC tell News 2 they are going to see what they can do to expedite the rest of the approval process so the store can finally open for business.
Esclavon said that is why he called us for help.
“Just having you guys, like you guys research it a little bit and maybe you push them along to have this project move up … they’re ready to go, I think,” he said.
Moncks Corner officials said once DHEC gives its final approval, Publix could open in as little as three to four weeks.

While the rapidly-growing Dynamic Health & Fitness has recently opened its newest site in Moncks Corner – its fourth in South Carolina – President & CEO Matt Mollohan assures that his “service-first” operation is the antithesis of big-box venues that prioritize profits over people.
Fresh off a July 11 ribbon-cutting ceremony to usher in his 12,000 square-foot standalone gym at 136 Rembert C. Dennis Blvd., Mollohan brings a wealth of experience in managing fitness venues as a former Regional Fitness Director at Pivotal Fitness prior to going on his own 10 years ago.
“I spent several years in the fitness industry. I actually started as a trainer. I’ve worked my way up the industry … So, I have a wide range of background from scrubbing toilets to operating 30 clubs,” said the Hopkins native, who plans on adding a staff of about 40 to his latest venture in Berkeley County.
“We’re not a franchise; we’re homegrown, right there in Lexington, South Carolina. [We] started with one club, a smaller club and everything we’ve done up to this point has been through organic growth, from our community improvement through giving back to our community. We try to put more emphasis on servicing our members and the community than we do in counting members.”
The present goal in Moncks Corner, he says, is to wipe away the sour taste the previous fitness retailer left in the mouths of locals at the renovated property by creating an all-welcoming environment that caters to people of all age groups.
In that vein, Mollohan has added brand new equipment to the building, which features full cardio decks, functional training stations, full free-weight areas, full-circuit training zones and full-service locker rooms.
A varied array of group exercise classes is also in the offing at Dynamic Health & Fitness, as clients can sample yoga, Pilates, Zumba, spinning and body pump options, as well a wide range of aerobics sessions.
In being a company that “genuinely cares,” continued the Nutrition and Corrective Exercise specialist, the Moncks Corner venue will surround fitness enthusiasts with certified personnel who can provide one-on-one assistance in helping them attain results and enhance their quality of life.
It’s the type of personal hands-on service that a vast majority of fitness giants neglect to furnish, observed Mollohan.
“Planet Fitness is a joke. They don’t care about fitness – they’re a numbers company. All they care about is crumpling as many people through the doors as they possibly can.”
And while one might assume that a big-box franchise’s hands-off approach might be best suited to the more seasoned fitness junkie, Mollohan disagreed with that notion.
“Not that I’m trying to bash Planet Fitness here, but I’m trying to give the facts. [It’s] not for experienced fitness people either. They kind of frown upon people who have fitness experience and people who are serious about working out,” he opined. “You can look at their motto and be able to figure that out relatively quickly.”
Those who haven’t yet stepped inside the new Moncks Corner addition, promised Mollohan, will be wowed by both the cleanliness of the all-encompassing gym area and its state-of-the-art workout equipment and amenities.
“We try to instill our culture of service-first, making sure our members are being taken care of first. We put together a first-class personal training program where people see real results with more-than-qualified personal trainers. The same with our small-group training, our boot camps, our team-training programs that are a little more intense than a group setting.
“But, again, we put in people who are truthfully overqualified in these positions to make sure they’re putting together nutritional guidance … that they’re putting together a program to get people the results that they deserve.”
What’s more, the owner/operator noted that his organization invites companies of any size to host corporate retreats at any of the four Dynamic Health & Fitness posts in the state.

A Charleston developer’s request for the annexation of about 16 acres of roadway outside a property subdivision in the Kitfield area of Moncks Corner was recently put on hold by the local planning commission as they examine access rights along Vanihayn Drive.
Wofford Stribling’s bid for approval to access the southern terminus of Vanihayn Drive and zone it with an R-2, Single-Family designation encountered a flurry of opposition by neighboring community members, in particular one family who owns property on each side of the road in question.
Gwendolyn Vanish Williams — in attendance at the July 26 planning commission meeting with her husband, Robert, and other family members — advised the governing body that Vanihayn Drive is a private road that’s been in her family since 1943.
Earlier in the hearing, Stribling noted that he is planning on adding 33 residences on a subdivision that connects to the road. Moreover, another 50 homes will be built on a nearby subdivision, per the owner of STYO Development.
“As part of our development plans for this project, it was encouraged by not only this board and the council at the time that we needed an additional entrance,” said Stribling. “We had one main entrance that was connected here. We had a proposed future right-of-way stubbed for future growth … it’s encouraged to have additional entrances and exits for emergency vehicles.”
He further stated that the state DOT and Berkeley County have jurisdiction over many of the roads located in and around his tract that is currently under construction. Stribling went on to note that his company is bound to the state agency pertaining to rules and/or specifications the department imposes on his construction venture.
“It is a public road and we will make any improvements necessary … based on our recent traffic report,” he continued.
Williams, however, disagreed with the assertion of Vanihayn Drive being a public artery, maintaining that she, her siblings and immediate family members would rather not see a constant flow of traffic crossing the family estates. She was amenable to the developer building behind her property, but just not directly on it.
Moncks Corner Community Development Director Doug Polen observed that the “real question” is researching/verifying whether the pathway is private or indeed a state road.
In the absence of evidence leading in either direction, the commission voted to table their vote on the matter till their late August meeting
In closing his presentation, Stribling promised the crowd of roughly 30 that he is confident of finding an alternate solution in the event of Vanihayn Drive being deemed a public roadway.
“I just hope that the solution is agreeable,” he concluded.
Another item addressed that same evening involved the proposed annexation of private property along Highway 52, which was green-lighted by the commission.
“We’ve been in talks with Santee Cooper about bringing this piece of land (i.e. 25-foot strips on each side of U.S. Highway 52 across from Parker’s Kitchen) in for a while. The main reason being that when we have a wreck at [SC-Highway] 402 … that we are going to able to handle incidents up there and ensure that traffic doesn’t get blocked up over the bridge for hours,” explained Polen.
Currently, only the South Carolina Highway Patrol is authorized to handle traffic collisions in that area, he continued, which creates congestion due to the department’s lack of personnel, as only two patrol officers are assigned to Berkeley County.
The commission’s recommendation of bringing the property into municipal boundaries will be presented to the Town Council for final approval.
* A week after the meeting Polen informed The Berkeley Independent that Vanihayn Road was deemed a public road by the county. No decisions have been made on whether to grant access to new residents.

Administrators and teachers have already begun to get the ball the rolling on the 2022-23 school year. Students will be returning to class Aug. 15. Several of the them will arrive by bus.
Last year was not a bright spot for district transportation. Students arrived late, some were not aware of their stops, and some were not picked up at all. The district was flooded with calls and complaints from parents saying they weren’t getting enough answers. But the root cause was the district didn’t have drivers.
Leandra Tipton lives in the Spring Grove subdivision off Old Highway 52. Her children went to Berkeley Middle School in Moncks Corner. She was having issues on exactly where her kids were getting picked up.
“When we moved over here it was horrible. I called the school first, the school said they had to transfer me to the bus system and the bus system couldn’t tell me which corner they were supposed be at,” said Tipton. “I just decided to take them to school. The third week is when I got an actual confirmation.”
Another parent Tiffany Hartwell said her daughter had to attend summer school because of the numerous times she was late or missed classes because of the bus system. Her child attends St. Stephen Middle.
“All year from beginning to end,” said Hartwell. Her husband works in Ridgeville and she works in North Charleston. “We have given so many reports to the school district it’s ridiculous. I’ve had to have my own family take off their jobs to take her because they are closer than me.”
Last year was the first full year back since the pandemic hit, so there were going to some hitches and there was always a struggle for good drivers. But the bus system seemed to never recover throughout the year. Several drivers even went on a short strike in November of 2021. Because of, what they called poor working conditions and overwork.
But officials believe this year will be different. There are more drivers coming in to fill the need so they don’t have to continually double up or double back on routes. The district has worked on new recruiting efforts, a pay hike to $16.80 an hour, which they hope can serve as morale boosters to get drivers in the seats and stay.
Tyra Ramsey is the new Director of Transportation in Berkeley County. She started in February.
“We had lots of work to do because we were short about 45 drivers at the time. So that was definitely an uphill battle that we were addressing I guess, from the minute my feet hit the floor here,” said Ramsey.
Ramsey has close to 20-years’ experience in transportation and has worked with the state as well as Dorchester District 2. She said 45 new drivers have been hired and will be on the road at the start of school.
“The leadership we have now in transportation are all parents. We all have children that go to school in this district that we have to pick up and transport,” said Ramsey. “We will not do anything less for their students than we would do for ours.”
Ramsey asks parents to give them some grace and be patient early, because there are always some kinks to be worked out during the first few days.
After that it will be determined whether or not parents continue to get the run-around from transportation, or the old nursery rhyme holds true.
“I’m praying this year. They go to high school this year, I’m hoping it’s better,” Tipton said.
