Townsquare Media will be sponsoring a blood drive for the American Red Cross July 15. The event, Townsquare Media Bleed Red Blood Drive, is being held to support the American Red Cross of Yakima.
According to Jayann Merkle, donor recruitment representative for the American Red Cross Yakima Valley Chapter, blood usage usually increases during the summer months but the amount of blood donated during the summer goes down. “Our goal is to collect 24 units [of blood].”
In sponsoring the event, Townsquare is promoting 92.9 The Bull’s Ronnie Dunn concert on July 21. “Ronnie Dunn with his current single “Bleed Red” is a perfect tie in and a way to bring recognition for all the great work that the Red Cross does,” said Rik Mikals, Townsquare Media operations manager. “I think it is a great combination and blood is always needed throughout the year so we are grateful for the volunteers and donors that are able to help out.”
The Bleed Red Blood Drive will be held on July 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Townsquare Media, located at 4010 Summitview. Volunteers can sign up to donate blood by contacting Townsquare Media at 509-972-3461.
