At WMMR Compassion Is In Their Blood


Blood is a precious commodity and always needed. And there always seems to be good people ready to give. WMMR Philadelphia’s morning team Preston & Steve took the giving to another level on Saturday, June 17, when they conducted an all-day blood drive at Valley Forge Casino Resort Event Center. Knowing blood supplies get low during summer months, the guys put out the call… and the response was fantastic. A total of 1,226 productive pints of blood were collected, including 144 of Power Red. (Power Red is similar to a whole blood donation, except a special machine is used to allow you to safely donate two units of red blood cells during one donation while returning your plasma and platelets to you.) And the good deeds didn’t go unrewarded. All donors received a collectible Preston & Steve t-shirt and the new “Yeah, A Cup” pint glass; and 500 were randomly selected to receive a pair of tickets to a Philly summer concert.
