The American Red Cross hosts blood drives all around the country. Their mission is to collect blood to save lives. Each donor donates about a pint of blood, and with that blood Red Cross can distribute to three individual people, ultimately saving three lives. The process of saving those lives is very extensive, considering all of the tests that they must perform to ensure that the blood is safe to donate.
The American Red Cross has set up several blood drives in our building, and we have had several opportunities to help with the first step of this process. We love to host these drives because on each occasion our employees have exceeded Red Cross’s expectations as well as our own. We feel extremely privileged to employ individuals who rise to the occasion, willing to give of their time to donate blood and save lives.
