Firefly Credit Union - BURNSVILLE, Minn. (May 16, 2017) - Firefly Credit Union partnered with Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) to host its semi-annual blood drive Tuesday, April 25, 2017.


According to Memorial Blood Centers, if you began donating blood at age 16 and consistently made donations approximately every three months until you reach age 76, you will donate 30 gallons of blood over a lifetime. Donors taking part in Firefly’s latest drive, including many consistent donators, helped to collect 23 units of blood, which has the potential to save up to 69 lives in the community.


“Firefly employees continually help to make a different in the community they work in,” said Firefly Credit Union President/CEO Bill Raker. “The dedication they have to supporting others, though blood drives and other volunteerism, is just one of the things that makes Firefly such a unique, inviting organization to be a part of­.”


Firefly will host its next blood drive this coming October. For more information or to donate, visit
