Call to Arms Blood Drive Happens Next Week
The "Call to Arms" Blood Drive is happening next week and we need your help! All of the Townsquare Media radio stations in Tyler-Longview are participating in conjunction with Carter BloodCare to raise the blood supply levels after the holiday season.
Get details on how you can help - and possibly win a trip for two - after the jump.
Blood donations drop during the holidays. People are busy preparing for the holiday season, and giving blood is the last thing on their list. The need for blood does not decreas,e however. In fact, the need for blood can actually go up during the holidays due to traffic and household accidents. That's why Townsquare Media decided to help!
You can help Tuesday through Saturday of next week during the Call To Arms Blood Drive. We will be set up at multiple locations each day with the Carter BloodCare Mobile units. Check the list of locations below and pick a day and time that works best for your schedule! You can also donate at one of the Carter BloodCare centers at 815 S. Baxter in Tyler or 3080 N. Eastman Road in Longview.
When you donate during the Call To Arms Blood Drive, you will have the chance to win a trip for two to your choice of San Francisco, New York, Miami Beach or Nashville.
You will also have the chance to win a catered “Big Game” watch party for 20 people – including a new flat screen HDTV to watch the game on!
Each donor will also receive a limited edition “Call To Arms” t-shirt.
