99.9 The Hawk - Classic Rock of the 70s, 80s, and more! Blood Drive


Rock & Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive:
99.9 The Hawk & Miller Keystone Blood Center’s 1st Annual Blood Drive



On Tuesday, January 23rd* from 9am to 6pm, The Hawk will hold a marathon blood drive at two Miller Keystone Blood Centers – Valley Center Parkway, Bethlehem and Cedar Crest Boulevard, Allentown. Winter is a critical time for blood donations as accidents are very high, so the need is much greater!


99.9 The Hawk will broadcast all day from 9am to 6pm at Miller-Keystone Blood Center's Bethlehem location (1465 Valley Center Parkway) with free food from 3 Men & A  Bagel, Allentown Bethlehem Goose, Jimmy Johns and 50 Yard Line Pizza Como, hourly prizes, live music and more! Come on out, rock & roll up your sleeve, and give a pint. All donors at our Bethlehem Donor Center will receive, while supplies last: Miller Lite pint glass with a voucher from 50 Yard Line Sports Bar @ Pizza Como  (21+ only), or a Pint of Ice Cream from ShopRite (under 21)!

*Snow date - January 24th

  • Miller-Keystone Blood Center has 9 Donor Centers conveniently located throughout the Lehigh Valley, Berks County and beyond, in addition to regular community Blood Drives scheduled throughout the year. 
  • Mobile blood drives are how Miller-Keystone gets the majority of its blood donations (about 60 percent) and fewer of those are held around the holidays. The center gets about 40 percent of its blood from individual donors - this individual donor is critical at this time of year. 
  • We often run short of type O, A, B blood, but shortages of ALL TYPES occur during the winter season. 
  • The entire donation process, from registration to release, will take 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the type of donation. Giving blood or platelets save lives and doesn’t cost a thing – just a bit of time. 
  • Miller-Keystone Blood Center is an independent, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) community organization established in 1971. 
  • Miller-Keystone Blood Center is the sole provider of blood products to 22 hospitals in 11 counties throughout PA and NJ
  • Miller-Keystone Blood Center serves approx. 100% of the hospitals and transfusion patients in the Lehigh Valley.
