The first Fox Carolina Give Blood Carolina blood drive collected more than 100 units of blood for the South Carolina and North Carolina chapters of the American Red Cross. The blood will help as many as 300 people in the upstate of South Carolina and the mountain region of western North Carolina.

The Red Cross approached Gray Television-owned Fox Carolina to ask for help with a blood shortage in the area. As a station with a strong connection to the communities it serves, Fox Carolina General Manager Bryce Caldwell immediately said yes.
