CARROLLTON, Texas, July 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 27, 2016, Carter BloodCare's mobile unit made a stop at Blue Jay's corporate office so the staff could make life-saving blood donations. The majority of the Carrollton staff joined the effort to supply the much-needed donations. Not only will their efforts contribute to research in important areas, the estimation is that at least 30 lives will be forever changed with the blood raised during Blue Jay's in-house Give a Day.
Community Relations Manager, Shannon Davis explained, "Giving blood is one of the most impactful efforts a person can make with their #giveaday. I think the best thing about this particular drive was that several people said this was the first time they had ever donated blood because they were scared. Those people stepped up to the challenge and donated and said afterwards that they would be giving more often because they know the process now."
The corporate office will be hosting Carter BloodCare again in October so Blue Jay can continue their life-changing efforts. As the socially conscious technology provider, Blue Jay believes in making as many contributions to their community as possible. Mrs. Davis hopes that even more first-time donors will join the effort on the next drive. She notes, "Give a Day is not just about making a difference that day; it is about inspiring others to create ongoing change."
