Gamecocks and Clemson Tigers Donate Blood This Week! – Columbia, SC

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 18, 2014

If you live in an apartment in West Columbia, SC you can help save lives while you support your team this week. Fans of the Carolina Gamecocks and the Clemson Tigers will take their rivalry off the field to help save lives at the 30th annual Carolina-Clemson Blood Drive. Donors will bleed garnet or orange to earn pints for their favorite school before the football teams face off for points.

The blood drive will be held this week through Friday, Nov. 21 on both school campuses. All University of South Carolina and Clemson University students, faculty, staff, alumni, and fans are encouraged to participate.

This Blood Drive is held this week before the Carolina-Clemson football game. During the holiday season, blood donations typically decrease. Over the past 30 years of this drive, the universities have collected about 100,000 pints of blood, potentially saving up to 300,000 lives.

“The Carolina Clemson drive is one of the largest blood drives in the country,” said Ryan Corcoran, Community CEO for the South Carolina Blood Services Region. “The impact of this drive cannot be understated. Thousands of patients will receive a potentially lifesaving gift through the efforts of students and fans.”

All presenting blood donors at the University of South Carolina will receive a commemorative blood drive T-shirt and the chance to enter to win giveaways items from local businesses. Refreshments will be served.

The coveted blood drive trophy will be awarded to the winning team at the game on Nov. 29 at Clemson Memorial Stadium.
