CAC Cares Virtual Blood DriveFebruary 4th, 2021
Community service is a cornerstone of CAC Specialty culture. As a company, we serve our communities through organizations helping people in need, and we remain committed to service even during a global pandemic. COVID-19 has left blood supplies dangerously low. Many of our nation’s blood centers are facing critical shortages of 1-2 day supplies or less and need donations as soon as possible. CAC Cares, our community service initiative, has organized a Virtual Blood Drive to support blood centers across the U.S. All of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive life-saving blood.
We encourage our families, friends, colleagues, and business partners to join our campaign. To participate, click the image above, make your pledge, and follow the links to schedule your blood donation appointment or make your financial donation to the blood center of your choice. Several donation centers, including the American Red Cross, Vitalant, and OneBlood, are currently testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies.
We recognize that blood centers in the U.S. follow federal guidelines for blood donations that may in some cases be exclusionary to certain communities, including the LGBTQ+ community. We support the American Red Cross, Vitalant, OneBlood and others in their research 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 donate blood at a later date or pledge a monetary donation instead.
Thank you for coming together and helping us make a difference. #cacspecialty #caccares
