American Red Cross Blood Drives
Each year TNG employees roll up their sleeves and donate precious blood to help save lives. Every minute of every day someone requires blood given through volunteer donation. Only three out of every 100 people in the U.S. are blood donors, which makes each donation all the more important. Anyone can donate at the TNG sponsored drives. Together we have collected more than 500 pints since initiating this effort.
During our first 2013 blood drive, 37 persons successfully donated. 37 whole blood and 2 double red units of lifesaving blood were collected. During our second blood drive of the year, 36 persons successfully donated, and 34 whole and 2 double red units of blood were collected. Between the two drives, we were able to give as many as 217 hospital patients a chance to once again enjoy good health.
