One of Salas O’Brien’s Ownership Values says that we Expect Leadership by contributing meaningfully to our communities. Right now, we have a significant opportunity to contribute to our communities through the “Sleeves Up” campaign from American Red Cross.
Sleeves Up is a is a virtual blood drive that allows you to donate lifesaving blood to people living in your community, while coordinating our efforts across Salas O’Brien.
Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic took a toll on the country’s blood supply, and efforts to reduce the spread of the virus have resulted in the closure of many locations where blood drives are normally held. According to the Red Cross, approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the U.S. The organization also says that one donation can save up to three lives.
To participate, click on the “PLEDGE TO GIVE BLOOD” section to the right side of the screen to go to the “Sleeves Up” campaign on the Red Cross website. If you have questions about your eligibility to donate blood, you can contact the donor client support line at (866) 236-3276.
Please take the time to share your donation story with your colleagues at Salas O’Brien! Take a selfie with your “Sleeves Up” while donating. Be sure to wear some Salas O’Brien apparel, and tag Salas O’Brien with your post your photo on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
