Uniweld employees are proud to make OneBlood donations!
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 20, 2015
OneBlood visited Uniweld Product’s Headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on October 19, 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 quite possibly save one's life.
Uniweld urges donors to visit OneBlood's website to learn about the importance of blood type specific donations. The website has detailed information on blood types to better educate donors on a variety of topics from what percentage of the population carries a blood type, what donation works best, what blood type they can receive, patients who will receive their red cells, who can receive their platelets, who can receive their plasma, and much more. Ensuring that each donor is well informed on what options are available to them, will allow them to know that they may not only be able to donate blood, but perhaps platelets or plasma which also in demand.
The 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 t-shirts, comedy show tickets, and chances to stay at a hotel resort. Uniweld employees were proud to make OneBlood donations, several of which were repeat donors. Of the many donors, Uniweld was proud to announce that Antonio De La Torre, Robert Latham, Angel Morales, Napoleón Amos, Patrick Norris, and Juan Regalado were the grand prize winners.
