Carolina-Clemson Football Challenge to Raise Money for Campus Ministries

The 2015 Carolina-Clemson football Challenge will be the occasion for a friendly competition in local churches sponsored by the Wesley Foundations at the University of South Carolina and Clemson University. Last year the Challenge raised nearly $6400 for campus ministry at South Carolina’s two largest universities. The plan and hope is to improve on that total. Fans of each school are invited to drop in their support in either a USC/garnet bucket or a Clemson/orange bucket as they leave worship on Sunday, 22 November. (29 November can be the alternate date). The money donated will be used to support the students and United Methodist campus ministries at USC and Clemson. Checks can be made out to Clemson Wesley Foundation. Contributions should be sent to the Clemson Wesley Foundation with “Carolina/Clemson Challenge” as a notation with the amounts for each school. Results will be tabulated and bragging rights issued.
