ROCKAWAY, NJ - WDHA radio station is partnering with Community Blood Service for a major blood donation event to address the national blood shortage. The event, call “Rock N Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive” will take place at the Rockaway Townsquare Mall on Saturday September 23 from 10am - 5pm.
The event will provide shoppers with a chance to give blood and meet WDHA DJ Terrie Carr, who’ll be broadcasting live from the event. All donors will receive a limited edition WDHA Rock N Roll Up Your Sleeves pint glass, and will become eligible to win tickets to see Guns N Roses (at the Prudential Center on October 12), along with tickets for other shows.
“The end of the summer is always a difficult time for the overall blood supply, and now these two hurricanes have created a nationwide crisis,” explains Robert Kessler, director of Recruitment for Community Blood Services. “There simply isn’t a sufficient amount of blood for everyone in need, so this event is our way of trying to help improve the situation.”
