Williamson County Realtors Invite The Public To Join Them In Giving The Gift Of Life
Crye-Leike Cofounder and CEO Harold Crye leads by example rolling up his sleeve to donate blood at one of the annual blood drive?s the Brentwood Regional Headquarters office sponsors.

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 in a time when many Nashville charities need the help of businesses and the public now more than ever.


“Disasters like the unusual Nashville flooding shine light on why donating to organizations such as United Way and the Red Cross is such an important thing to do,” said Crye-Leike Broker and Blood Drive Coordinator Jim Heidenway. “For these organizations, donations are vital to their survival and their ability to help those who need it most in times of terrible tragedy.”


The Realtors work with buyers and sellers in the community everyday and giving back to the community by supporting charities like the American Red Cross has always been an important goal for the sales associates in Crye-Leike’s Brentwood West Sales Office.


“For the past seven years we have hosted a blood drive for the Red Cross in the summer,” said Crye-Leike Broker and Blood Drive Coordinator Lorie Layman. “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 Eighth Annual Summer Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 9th from 10:00am – 4:00pm at the Regional Headquarters Sales Plaza located at 5111 Maryland Way.


The office’s goal is to have at least 80 donors 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.


“We hope lots of people will join us in giving the gift of life in a time when donations are needed most,” said Heidenway. “We 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.”

On Wednesday, June 9th 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.


For more information or to schedule an appointment to donate blood contact Crye-Leike’s Brentwood West Sales Office at 373-2044 and ask for Brokers Jim Heidenway or Lorie Layman.


All donors will be entered into a drawing with a chance to win dinner for two at Logan’s Roadhouse.


“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,” said Heidenway.
