Spectrum Healthcare Resources holds a quarterly blood drive, in support of the American Red Cross, at our corporate office in St. Louis, Missouri. Our most recent blood drive was held on July 21 and we are pleased to announce that 19 people signed up to participate in the event. Each person typically donates 1 pint of blood, which can save up to three lives, which means that our Blood Drive saved up to 57 lives. A total of 30 million blood components are transfused each year, and 41,000 blood donations are needed daily.
At the time of this Drive, there was an emergency need for blood donors. The American Red Cross noted that blood products were being distributed almost as quickly as they were coming in. Spectrum is proud of our employees for donating and supporting the efforts of the American Red Cross.
