PDS Blood Drive Helps Save Lives
We Serve Assistant Rachael Parker recently received an award on behalf of PDS from the American Red Cross during a sponsorship recognition breakfast at the Irvine Marriott. According to Rachael, “We won the Platinum Award, the highest Achievement Award given because we increased our total collected units by 123% in 2010!”
On April 11, 2011, PDS conducted a Blood Drive at the support office in Irvine. Forty one units of blood were collected, which equals approximately 123 lives saved! There is no substitute for blood and the only way to get it is through generous donations.
*If you donate blood, you can save up to 3 lives
* Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood
* One out of every 10 people admitted in a hospital needs blood
* The demand for blood transfusions is growing faster than donations
*Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors
