The American Red Cross is facing an emergency blood shortage as it experiences the lowest number of people giving blood in the last 20 years. Blood and platelet donations are needed now to help alleviate the shortage and ensure lifesaving medical procedures proceed without delay.
CIS Cares invites you to join our “We Care” blood drive donation by making a pledge to give between now and February 29! Upon making a pledge, you will be provided instructions on how to go about booking your appointment. For every pint of blood donated between now and February 28, CIS Cares will make a $10 donation to the American Red Cross.
How to participate:
– Obtain supervisor approval prior to pledging to donate blood.
– A VTO request form is not needed since this is a pre-approved CIS Cares event.
– Pledge to give blood and make an appointment.
– Donate blood!
– Log your volunteer hours using the “VTO” code in ADP.
