Firefly Employees Showed Their ‘Minnesota Nice’ in Summer Blood Drive
Thursday, August 18, 2016
Firefly Credit Union - BURNSVILLE, Minn. (August 18, 2016) - Firefly Credit Union partnered with Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) to host its semi- annual blood drive July 20, 2016. The drive’s theme was a tribute to the credit union’s Minnesota roots. Employees who donated had the chance to win Minnesota themed items such as t-shirts, mugs and keychains.
According to Memorial Blood Centers, one in three people will benefit from receiving a blood donation at some point in their lifetime. Donors taking part in Firefly’s latest drive helped to collect 26 whole blood cell units, which will have the potential to save up to 78 lives in the community.
“Twice each year, the team here at Firefly graciously opens their hearts to make a positive impact in the community by donating blood to those in need,” said Firefly Credit Union President/CEO Bill Raker. “It is their dedication to supporting others that makes Firefly such a great place to work.”
Firefly Credit Union will host their next blood drive this coming winter. For more information or to donate, visit MBC.org.
