The fifth annual Famously Hot blood drive for the American Red Cross will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
It is often difficult to collect enough blood donations to meet patient needs during the summer months when schools are out and many families are on vacation.
Donors will receive a Famously Hot blood drive T-shirt and a Red Cross cooling towel.
