The Dinter Engineering annual blood drive this year is set for September 8, 2016 from 1:00-4:00pm in our back parking lot. The sign-up sheet will be posted in our office kitchen, along with some information posters and pamphlets. The times are set up for two people every fifteen minutes. You can also sign-up on line thru the United Blood Services website at https://www.bloodhero.com/index.cfm?group=op&step=2&opid=689077&opidh=EB955AEF9B1B4BA007BE9D28C1798542&idt=42591.6741319. The actual time it will take for each person to complete the process is thirty to forty-five minutes. Attached is an information poster that you can also post in your office.
This will be our 25th consecutive year for the drive. Just think how many lives have been touched over those years by people like you giving just one pint of blood! Each unit can help up to 3 different people!
We are aiming for at least 10 donors this year; more would be great! Last year we were credited with 9 units of blood. Please consider helping out for this very worthwhile cause. Your one pint of blood will help several patients continue on with their life. Someone you know might be one of those people.
For those of you who are unsure about donating blood for any reason please contact me and I will discuss the issue with you. We continue to strive to have the drive on 9/11, or close to it, since we were already scheduled for a drive on that fateful date of 9/11/01. Every day though is a struggle for someone who needs a blood product. Blood units cannot be made at a factory or bought at the store. It is only through gracious donations that people’s lives are saved.
Please post the attached poster in your office to help us reach our goal.
Thank you for your wonderful support and cooperation and I hope to see all of you at our blood drive.
