CAC Specialty joins forces with the American Red Cross for a SleevesUp Campaign
Jul 16, 2020
Community service is a cornerstone of CAC culture. As a company, CAC Specialty is striving to support our communities through organizations established to help people in need. In conjunction with the American Red Cross, we have organized a “SleevesUp” campaign. We work together every day to do important work, but today, we want to accomplish something even more meaningful. The Red Cross has to collect 15,000 blood donations every day to have enough blood to help patients in 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. That’s a lot of patients in need and all of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive lifesaving blood.
We encourage our friends, colleagues, and business partners to join us for SleevesUp! Should you wish to participate, all you need to do is click the image above and provide your contact information, schedule your donation, and give. For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all donations for COVID-19 antibodies. We are aware that the American Red Cross does not do collections in certain parts of the country. If you are unable to locate an American Red Cross drive convenient to you, please still take the “pledge” and use the following link to find an alternative donation site: https://lnkd.in/ejFcVuD
We recognize that the American Red Cross follows federal guidelines for blood donations that may in some cases be exclusionary to certain communities, including the LGBTQ+ community. We support the Red Cross in their efforts to find eligibility criteria not based on sexual orientation. Those ineligible or unable to give blood at this time, for any reason, may pledge to schedule a blood donation for a later date or pledge to give a monetary donation instead (https://lnkd.in/guV33BD).
Thank you for coming together and helping us make a difference. #cacspecialty
