NEWS102.3 & AM740 KRMG are partnering with the American Red Cross in a two-day Red, White and You Blood Drive. The campaign launches on Thursday, June 27 and runs through Friday, June 28. The Cox Media Group-Tulsa stations are trying to offset the drop in blood donations that typically happen over the summer.
“The summer months are the most difficult time for blood collection,” said Jan Hale, Communications Manager of the Red Cross Southwest Region. “Students make up nearly 20% of donations during the year and add that many people are on vacation during the summer, you have the recipe for a summer blood shortage.”
“Imagine our community if we were missing the Red Cross,” said Levi May, Director of Branding and Programming, NEWS102.3 and AM740KRMG. “Together we do great things. Let’s continue helping our neighbors in need, together.”
The Red, White & You Blood Drive has two donation sites in Tulsa at the Red Cross Blood Donation Center and Woodland Hills Mall, and have added two additional donation sites in Broken Arrow. Donors will receive a free Red Cross t-shirt, while supplies last.
