Today the Blood Vessel was parked in Greenville’s pipe yard for its quarterly visit. This month a challenge was brought to the table between Eastern’s Corporate and Greenville locations – Who could have the most participation? The idea sparked an interest with a total of 25 donors and 3 first time donors. The Blood Connection received 21 units of blood from the Associates who were viable for donating blood. Out of Eastern’s 41 blood drives since July 2000, this was our most successful blood drive! Since we began these blood drives in 2000 Eastern Associates in the Upstate have donated 443 units of blood, benefiting 1,329 people in the Upstate’s 16 hospitals. What a wonderful feeling to know that because Eastern Associates care lives have been forever altered for the better!
