Verisys Teams up with ARUP to Host a Mobile Blood Drive for its Utah Employees
Verisys employees working in the Salt Lake City operations office had the opportunity to donate blood this past week during the ARUP mobile blood drive held on Wednesday, July 31st. Blood donations drop during the busy summer months but the demand for donors remains high year-round. Verisys is proud to be able to give back to their community where the blood donated to ARUP stays in the state of Utah to serve local patients. Verisys hosts blood drives several times throughout the year giving its employees a chance to donate to this much-needed cause.
The bloodmobile was parked just outside the main office doors making it extremely convenient for employees to donate. It was heartwarming to see colleagues around the office with their arms wrapped after their donation, knowing that their service is vital and appreciated by so many. 70% of the blood ARUP collects all year comes from its mobile blood drive units.
