This week Edison Power employees helped donate blood in support of the Summer Drive to Save Lives event, run by United Blood Services. This blood drive supports local hospitals and patients that are in need of blood and for medical advances, and modern surgical techniques, such as cancer treatments, organ transplants, and open heart surgery. The donations can be used in their whole state as collected or be separate into red cells, plasma, platelets and cryoprecipitate.

After donating donors were then entered in to win a Volkswagen Golf giveaway. Blood donations took place in the United Blood Services Bloodmobile right outside the Edison Power corporate office on August 6th. The Summer Drive to Save Lives goes on till August 31st, so be sure to visit www.UnitedBloodServicesAZ.org if you want to help support the cause.
