Presenting donors will have the opportunity to meet members of the Preston & Steve morning show and will receive a free limited-edition Preston & Steve T-shirt, while supplies last. WMMR will also give away concert tickets to random presenting donors throughout the day. Free food and children’s activities round out the event.*
“I Bleed for Preston & Steve” is the largest blood drive in the Penn Jersey Blood Services Region and is the second largest single-day blood drive in the United States—missing the top rank last year by only 12 donations.

“We’re asking WMMR listeners to mark their calendars and book their appointments early,” said Alana Mauger, communications manager for the Red Cross Penn Jersey Blood Services Region. “Let’s make our 14th year the biggest and best.”
Over the past 13 years of partnership, WMMR and the Red Cross have collected close to 15,000 pints of blood, which potentially helped up to 44,700 patients in the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond.
Blood cannot be manufactured. Healthy, volunteer blood donors are the only source of blood and platelets for those in need of transfusions. Volunteer blood donors of all types—particularly type O—are needed to help maintain a stable blood supply this summer.
