VIRGINIA BLOOD SERVICES and COX RADIO/RICHMOND partnered together on MONDAY, JANUARY 7th for a record setting blood drive raising 322 qualified blood donations. JANUARY is an important time of year when blood supply is always at its lowest. The blood bank had a critically low state of O positive and B negative blood. After this one blood drive, VIRGINIA BLOOD SERVICES now has an acceptable level of both blood types.
"It was the most successful blood drive in VIRGINIA BLOOD SERVICES history in RICHMOND," said VBS Dir./Public Relations NANCY CONRY.
"This event really shows how all of our listeners are willing to help when the community needs it most," said Country WKHK (K95) PD BUDDY VAN ARSDALE. "I was proud to see how our staff was able to work together to create such a flawless event."
