At SimVentions we are proud to have many employees who regularly engage in volunteer activities throughout the community. Some of them donate their time in helping host events and fundraisers, others engage in various forms of mentoring and counseling, while some of them take on a different type of volunteer work by actually donating a little part of themselves – their blood.
SimVentions has been actively participating in hosting blood drives through the American Red Cross for several years now. At the last event, which took place on Monday, May 2, there were 25 individuals who donated, and a total of 21 usable units were collected! To date, SimV has hosted twelve blood drives during which time 314 units of whole blood were received. Because each unit has the potential of being used for up to THREE patients, SimV donors have potentially had a part in saving almost a THOUSAND lives! Remember, when you give BLOOD, you are giving the gift of LIFE!
