WRQX (Mix 107.3)-WMAL/Washington Set Blood Drive For Vegas Shooting Victims
CUMULUS Hot AC WRQX (MIX 107.3) and News-Talk WMAL-A-F/WASHINGTON are holding a “VEGAS Victims’ Blood Drive” at the HILTON MCLEAN TYSONS CORNER in MCLEAN ,VA next WEDNESDAY (10/11), collecting blood with INOVA BLOOD DONOR SERVICES.
“In the aftermath of tragic events, we are always asked how people can help,” said INOVA Director TERRI CRADDOCK. “The answer is: donate blood. There is no substitute for human blood, so the only way we can help is by ensuring that our blood inventory is stocked. We not only need blood immediately following events such as this, but we encourage donors to make a commitment to donate blood regularly – every two months, if they are eligible.”
MIX 107.3 PD ROB ROBERTS said, “Distance doesn’t lessen the impact of what happened in LAS VEGAS. This is our chance to help someone and it costs nothing but a little time. We’re proud to do our part.”
WMAL PD BILL HESS added, “The injured — including some from our area — face a lengthy recovery, and this is one thing we can come together and do to help in our own individual way. We invite our friends and listeners to roll up their sleeves and join us WEDNESDAY in this effort.”
