Brentwood, TN, - For many years, the Realtors in Crye-Leike's Brentwood West Regional Headquarters office have sponsored a blood drive for the American Red Cross - and this year they will keep that tradition alive as they host their 9th Annual Blood Drive.


On Wednesday, June 8th, an American Red Cross Blood Mobile will be parked outside of Crye-Leike's Brentwood West sales office - located at 5111 Maryland Way - with a full nursing staff standing by to take good care of all the donors.


"We hope lots of people will join us in giving the gift of life," said Crye-Leike Realtor and Brentwood Blood Drive Coordinator Jim Heidenway. "We invite and encourage the public to join our efforts in supporting the Red Cross by calling our office to schedule an appointment time to give blood. This will ensure no one will have to wait in line."


Crye-Leike's Realtors work with buyers and sellers in the community everyday and giving back to the community they serve by supporting charities like the American Red Cross has always been an important goal for the sales associates of Crye-Leike's Brentwood Branch.


"We host our blood drives for the Red Cross in the summer because that's the time when donors are needed most," said Heidenway. "During the summer months, the need for blood in local hospitals increases due to travel related injuries, outdoor accidents and scheduled surgeries while donations often decrease because regular donors are busy with travel and vacation plans."


Crye-Leike, REALTORS in Brentwood will host its 9th Annual Summer Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 8th from 10:00am - 3:00pm at the Regional Headquarters Plaza located at 5111 Maryland Way - providing a convenient way for the agents and the community to donate.


The office's goal is to have as many donors as possible because 800 pints of blood are needed each day in the Greater Nashville area. Each pint of blood donated can save as many as three lives and also goes to help the Red Cross maintain a ready supply of blood for emergencies.


"All donors will be entered into a drawing with a chance to win dinner for two at Logan's Roadhouse," said Heidenway. "In addition for a chance to win a nice dinner at Logan's, anyone who donates blood will have the satisfaction of knowing they are saving a life."
