Guardian Alarm 2012 Red Cross Blood Drive Another Success

For years Guardian employees have donated to the Red Cross during the company's Annual Blood Drive. This year was another great success! Special thanks go to the Pierce Family for generously hosting and our terrific HR department for organizing and running the event. Management also cooked and served breakfast and lunch for the employees who donated blood.

The following is a letter we received from the Red Cross of Southeastern Michigan: "Thank you for all of your help with the blood drive yesterday. I hope you know how much we value your support and how much we appreciate all your hard work. The American Red Cross Blood Services staff extends their heartfelt appreciation for your efforts on behalf of the many patients whose lives depend on the availability of blood products in our community. Coordinating an American Red Cross blood drive - and knowing you're responsible for saving so many lives - makes you an invaluable contributor in our community. The results of your blood drive on June 13, 2012 are as follows: Blood Drive Goal: 31 34 Persons successfully donated one unit of whole blood 4 People gave double reds 5 First time donors!!! 38 Units of lifesaving blood were collected, giving as many as 114 hospital patients a chance to once again enjoy good health. Thank you very much for all your effort and support! We could not provide the necessary blood products to our area patients without your help. You are a true community lifesaver! Please share the outstanding results with your employees. Kelley DeLong DRD Biomedical Representative Donor Resources Development"

We can't wait to do it again next year!  For more information on Guardian Alarm, visit their website or call 1-800-STAY-OUT.
