Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) March 23, 2016
OneBlood paid a visit to Uniweld Product’s Headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 17, for their semi-annual blood drive to receive 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 would like to encourage donors to visit OneBlood's website to learn about the importance of blood type specific donations and how individuals or groups can schedule a drive at their locations as well. The OneBlood 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 potential donors to understand that they may not be limited to making only blood donations, but perhaps they could donate platelets or plasma instead, which is also in high demand.
The Big Red Bus rolled into Uniweld’s facility at 9:00 am on Thursday morning and prepared to receive donations from willing employees. 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 as well as movie tickets. Uniweld employees are always proud to make donations to OneBlood’s cause, and several employees are often repeat donors who make contributions each time the Big Red Bus rolls into Uniweld’s headquarters facility.
Uniweld urges other companies to contact OneBlood for more information on scheduling a visit or making a donation in your area.
