FLORENCE and MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The American Red Cross is challenging community members in Florence and Myrtle Beach, to bleed garnet or orange for their favorite college team, from November 16 through 28. 

Donors will get to show their team spirit by casting their vote for the University of South Carolina or Clemson University and receive a commemorative Carolina-Clemson blood drive T-shirt, while supplies last. 

The timing of the annual Carolina-Clemson blood drive is done in an effort to increase blood donations, as they typically decrease during the holiday season.
