Andre Green from the National Quality Department set up a Blood Drive with the American Red Cross at the UAW-Ford National Programs Center. The American Red Cross was able to collect 14 pints of blood for our community. Because each pint is separated into Red Blood Cells, Platelets and Plasma, as many as 42 patients lives will be changed because of their generosity. 5,600 times a day, somebody receives a Red Cross blood product. The American Red Cross has relied on the partnership with the UAW for many years to help them ensure that our hospitals have a healthy blood supply.
A BIG Thank You to all those that supported the American Red Cross Blood Drive to ensure that nobody has to wait for this life saving gift!!!
