American Red Cross Blood Drive to Help 21 People
September 15, 2009
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates hosted their second annual blood drive for the American Red Cross at their Bushkill office. “A total of 7 productive units of blood were collected at the blood drive on Labor Day weekend,” said Jaqueline Dercole of the American Red Cross Blood Srvices department, who helped plan the blood drive with Lisa Flory, manager of the Bushkill office.
Jaqueline also mentioned that the units collected would be enough to help 21 people.
The American Red Cross attempts to collect 40 units per day on a regular basis but has seen their numbers drop drastically in the past few months so they appreciate all of the help they can get from local businesses. This fits well with the outlook of Thomas Wilkins, owner of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates, who is always pleased to be part of these types of community events.
After stopping in at the Blood Drive Tom said that he was happy to see people heading in to donate blood and that he’s looking forward to the third annual blood drive.
