Warwick, RI (November 26, 2008) - The Rhode Island Blood Center (RIBC) is a key component of the state's health care system and its only source of blood and blood products. Today's increasing blood needs prompted Brave River to contribute for the second time. Held at their office at Centerville Commons in Warwick, the blood drive inspired not only Brave River employees to become donors, but friends, family, and neighboring companies alike. With such a tremendous turnout, twice as much blood was collected compared to that of last year.
Taking five to ten minutes out of a busy schedule to donate blood provides an invaluable opportunity; an opportunity to save a life. "During this time of year it is important to not only give thanks, but to simply give. I cannot think of anything better to give than another chance at life, the RIBC provides a means to do just that" said Lindsey Viveiros of Brave River. "This experience also provokes a feeling of gratitude; not solely for one's health but for living in a society where the welfare of the community becomes a sincere concern of the individual."
Without the support of companies and organizations it would be impossible to collect enough blood to meet Rhode Island's needs; Brave River was pleased to be a part of this statewide effort.
Brave River would like to thank all of the donors for their support in helping to make their second annual blood drive a success. They would also like to thank the Rhode Island Blood Center and all of their employees and volunteers for helping make this possible.
If only one more percent of all Americans would give blood, blood shortages would disappear for the foreseeable future. For more information on the RIBC, visit www.ribc.org.
