In the days following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the Red Cross in the capital region sent the majority of their blood supply to Texas and Florida. That left a major shortage in the Washington D.C. area. That’s when the American Red Cross turned to the WGTS 91.9 family to help meet the need.
On September 15th WGTS, based in Takoma Park, Md., hosted a blood drive all afternoon at the American Red Cross Chapter in Silver Spring, Md. In just six hours WGTS listeners gave enough blood to stock the entire DC area for a month.
