Blood donations tend to drop off this time of year – it’s part of the post-holidays slump. Yet demand remains high.
To help address this need, Swinerton’s Aviation team is supporting the American Red Cross and National Blood Donor Month this January. As part of our efforts, we’re encouraging all healthy individuals to help saves lives by donating blood. Here’s how you can give: Find details on how you can give blood near you by entering your zip code at RedCrossBlood.org or through the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
The American Red Cross must collect more than 13,000 blood donations every day for patients in need, so anything you can do is appreciated!
Our Aviation team’s involvement in National Blood Donor Month represents just one piece of our year-round support of the American Red Cross. Throughout the year, our multi-faceted support includes:
– Financial assistance – Swinerton and its foundation, Swinerton Cares, will donate to the ARC throughout 2019.
– Education – Swinerton is developing a program in partnership with our aviation clients to conduct on-site disaster preparedness training at all aviation project sites.
The American Red Cross’s mission of preventing and relieving suffering at home and around the world aligns well with Swinerton’s own mission of giving back to the communities in which we work.
By supporting the American Red Cross, we aim to positively impact our communities, employees and business partners.
