PatientPop is always looking for ways to be active in our community and continue our commitment to philanthropy. Last week, we partnered with the American Red Cross to host an employee blood drive. This was our third time partnering with them and we are always excited to support such a great cause. According to the Red Cross, every two seconds, someone in the US needs blood. These blood drives are critical in helping the Red Cross prepare for emergencies and be ready to help in a moments notice.
On the day of the blood drive, the Red Cross parked a “BloodMobile” outside of our office. This made it extremely easy and convenient for our employees to participate! Twenty three of our employees signed up to donate and in total, 20 pints of blood were collected. The Red Cross has calculated that about 3 lives are saved per pint, which means we were able to contribute to saving 60 lives!
Thank you to all of our #PatientPopPeople who donated, and to the Red Cross for your continued partnership!
