Tucson, Arizona – CREST is sponsoring a blood drive with the American Red Cross for CREST employees only. By hosting blood drives, our organization will demonstrate its commitment to community health needs while helping to ensure that an adequate blood supply is available at all times for anyone who needs it. Also, by holding a blood drive, we are hoping to offer our community a more convenient blood donation opportunity.
Giving blood is safe, simple and helps save lives. Each pint of blood that is donated may be helping as many as three people. The American Red Cross is the largest single provider of blood in the country. They provide blood to 3,000 hospitals across the country. About 38,000 people need blood each day in the United States. Those people count on volunteer donors to give them a chance at life.
SAVE THE DATE! TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19TH, CREST 5TH FLOOR CLASSROOM.
Please note this event is not open to the public and there is no RSVP required. We hope to see all of our amazing Tucson area staff there to donate to this great cause!
