FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - WMBF News went 'In Your Community,' with our reporters bringing you special, in-depth reports on Florence on Wednesday, March 26 in a segment sponsored by the Carolinas Hospital System.
We broadcasted live from Florence all day with stories from the Florence area.
We also broadcasted live from the WMBF News-sponsored blood drives at the Magnolia Mall in Florence and the Coastal Grand Mall in Myrtle Beach. Generous donors lined up all day, bringing in over 170 pints of blood total, enough to save over 430 lives!
