ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Throughout the month of May, Continental Service Group, Inc., d.b.a. ConServe is hosting spring blood drive in partnership with Upstate New York Transplant Services (Unyts). On May 8th & May 9th, ConServe had a great turnout at their Henrietta, and Buffalo, New York offices, with 28 “Whole” blood donors. Every unit collected can save up to three lives. On May 15th & 16th , the Unyts “Donate Life Express Bus” will be onsite at ConServe’s Fairport, New York Office. George Huyler, Vice President of Human Resources at ConServe, is expecting a great turnout, “our blood drives are always a huge success, it is evident that our employees feel good about helping our community and realize the importance of saving lives through the gift of a blood donation.”
“As Western New York’s only community blood bank, Unyts concentrates on fulfilling the blood needs of a single region. Often as a result of this locally-driven operation, donation rates rise among the area population and costs decrease on the part of area purchasers” said Mark Simon, President & CEO of Unyts. “Community blood banks are neighbors helping neighbors – and by giving blood with Unyts you are making sure your family, friends, neighbors and other members of the community have blood available when they need it. It’s important for Unyts to partner with organizations that truly give back to this community. ConServe has been doing just that for years, and we are happy to have them as part of our team.”
Hanna Shaffner, an Operations Services Representative at ConServe, states:
To me, giving blood is a selfless act that can save someone’s life. It is a quick, simple task that can have a long lasting effect for someone in need. Donating blood is just a small way of giving back to the community, and it was extremely convenient having this option available at work.
