BRENTWOOD, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS is proud to announce that the company’s Brentwood West branch office will sponsor its fifth annual blood drive on July 24th, from 10:00am until 4:00pm. Agents are encouraging the community to donate blood and help them reach their goal of donating at least 60 pints of blood to the American Red Cross.


“Locally, 800 pints of blood are needed each day in the Greater Nashville area,” said Jim Heidenway. “Each pint can save as many as three lives.”


During the summer months, the need for blood in local hospitals increases due to travel related injuries, outdoor accidents and scheduled surgeries.  At the same time, donations often decrease because regular donors are busy with travel and vacation plans.


“Sixty percent of the population is eligible to give blood, but only 5% do,” said Heidenway. “We are encouraging the community to participate by calling to schedule an appointment to donate. All donors will be entered into a drawing for dinner for two at Logan’s Roadhouse. They will also have the satisfaction of knowing they are saving a life.”


The office will have a blood mobile at the Crye-Leike, Realtor Plaza located at 5111 Maryland Way Brentwood, TN 37207 from 10am-4pm on July 24th.


Heidenway is a licensed agent working with buyers and sellers in and around Davidson and Williamson counties. He is an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), a Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI), a Certified Builder Specialist (CBS) and a Lifetime Member of the Multi-Million Dollar Club. Heidenway is a member of the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors (GNAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).
