Firefly Credit Union - BURNSVILLE, Minn. (October 31, 2017) - Firefly Credit Union® partnered with Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) to host a blood drive October 18, 2017.

 

The MBC website states that every two seconds someone needs blood, from premature infants to friends and neighbors battling cancer, accident and trauma victims to bone marrow transplant recipients. Only volunteer blood donors can help save lives.

 

Volunteering to take just a few minutes out of their day, donors at Firefly’s latest drive helped collect 18 whole blood cell units, which will have the potential to save up to 42 lives in the community.

 

“Helping others is part of the credit union philosophy and with every blood donation, our generous employees help those in need,” said Bill Raker, Firefly Credit Union President/CEO. “We are grateful to partner with Memorial Blood Centers with their onsite visits and hardworking staff!”

 

Firefly Credit Union will host their next blood drive this winter. For more information or to donate, visit MBC.org.
