Thank you to our dedicated Blue Ribbon Employee, Kathryn Stuckey for spearheading this amazing community event last Friday, August 5th.
After hearing about the tragic shooting event in Orlando, she wondered how she could make a difference locally and organized this event for BRT and our Fort Benjamin Harrison neighbors. She read this article about why giving blood after Orlando matters so much.
The next day, she began organizing an opportunity for BRT to host a blood drive with The American Red Cross, which will gave all the employees the opportunity to participate and make a difference.
The American Red Cross blood mobile sat outside the BRT offices located at 5752 Wheeler Road on Fort Ben’s Campus in Indianapolis from 12-6pm last Friday and employees and guests lined up to donate blood.
Blue Ribbon Transport’s sister company, Caito Foods provided fruit and BRT provided snacks, drinks and give-aways via a raffle to employees who sign up to donate.
The successful event surpassed our goal by Kat says, “Thanks everyone for making this event so successful. We exceeded our goal by 10 people!! We had 55 people signed up!!! 31 are BRT employees!!!”
Indiana Blood Services Region Account Manager, Meg Ahlering, says “Great job at turning an ordinary day into an EXTRAORDINARY DAY!”
