During the summer, there is a significant blood shortage in Southern California. The American Red Cross has issued an emergency request for eligible blood donors of all blood types to roll up their sleeves and help save lives. BQE responded to this request by hosting a blood drive at the LA office with the American Red Cross on Thursday, September 8th to help patients from the local hospitals.
It was a successful blood drive with over 20 scheduled donors, many of whom were BQE employees who took time off from their busy schedules to give blood to those in need. According to the results from the American Red Cross, our efforts helped save up to 33 lives. We enjoyed participating in this fun and rewarding community event!
