HTC employees, neighbors give gift of life
Conway, SC – As the holiday season approaches, HTC employees are giving something that means something- the gift of life-saving blood. On Tuesday, November 7, HTC employees hosted a successful employee blood drive for the American Red Cross at the HTC main office in Conway. A total of 24 pints were collected with the potential of saving as many as 72 lives in Horry County-because each unit has the power to save up to three lives.
“Due to the recent hurricanes this fall, many blood drives were canceled causing a critically-low blood supply. HTC is proud to do its part to help with the shortage through our partnership with the American Red Cross,” said Lisa Martin, Senior Marketing Coordinator at HTC. “It is through the generous and caring donations of HTC employees that we can host quarterly blood drives, ensure blood is readily available whenever and wherever it is needed and ultimately help save lives in our community.”
HTC employees have donated 92 units of blood this year. According to American Red Cross records, HTC has donated over 2,756 units of blood since 1999, potentially saving as many as 8,200 lives.
For more information about how you can participate in the quarterly blood drives held at HTC, please contact Lisa Martin, HTC Senior Marketing Coordinator, at 843-369-8714.
