As a community asset, the OneBlood name is a constant reminder of the collective power we share to save another person’s life.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) March 24, 2014
OneBlood paid a visit to Uniweld Product’s Headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 20, 2014 to receive blood donations from willing and able employees. Uniweld hosts company blood drives at their headquarters twice each year, providing employees with the opportunity to give to those in need and perhaps save a live.
OneBlood Donation Services is a well-known and respected Florida blood donation service. According to OneBlood.org, “on January 27, 2012 three of Florida’s independent, not-for-profit blood centers, Community Blood Centers of Florida, Inc. (CBCF), Florida’s Blood Centers, Inc. (FBC) and Florida Blood Services, Inc. (FBS) came together” and after more than one year of extensive collaboration and planning, OneBlood, Inc. was established. OneBlood’s service area includes Tampa Bay area, South and Southeast Florida, the Orlando-metro area and surrounding Central Florida counties, parts of Southwest Florida, Pensacola and Tallahassee and some parts of Southern Georgia and Alabama.

OneBlood’s Big Red Bus rolled into Uniweld’s facility at 9:00 am on Thursday morning and prepared for donations. As an incentive to donate, OneBlood also likes to reward donors with tokens of appreciation and on this day, Uniweld employees were rewarded with free movie tickets. Uniweld employees were proud to make OneBlood donations, several of which were able to generously perform double red cell donations.
