Is your company able to host a blood drive to help save lives?

Local News

Not every hero wears a cape; some heroes work long weeks, endless hours and still manage to roll up their sleeves to help save lives.

Every week, different local businesses host blood drives with the Community Blood Bank of Northwestern Pennsylvania and western New York.

The Plastek group has hosted a blood drive with the CBB every other month since 2007 to help fill the needs of the local blood supply. 

These employees take time out of their busy schedule to head to the Bloodmobile.

Plastek employees have donated nearly 1500 units of blood in that time, impacting the lives of nearly 5,000 patients in our local hospitals. 

Plastek Group Nurse Elizabeth Bradley says, “Part of our mission statement here at Plastek is we promote health and wellness for our employees, so us being able to give back to our employees and donating blood, we feel it’s an honor.”

If your company is interested in helping fill the need and hosting a blood drive, you can contact the Community Blood Bank at 814-456-4206.
