Universities compete to collect blood

Three universities — Bob Jones, Furman and North Greenville — are competing in a Saving Lives Together blood drive to help the Blood Connection collect a record amount of blood donations and meet a great need for blood in the Upstate.

Each university is sponsoring a drive to see which can get the largest percentage of students to donate blood and strengthen unity between the schools and the greater Greenville community.

North Greenville held its competition last week. Bob Jones will hold the “Together We Bleed Bruin” blood drive Oct. 7-11, and Furman’s will be held Oct. 28-Nov. 1.
