Summit Electric Supply associates in El Paso rallied to help their community get through the summer’s drop in blood donations. United Blood Services called Customer Service Representative Chas Thomas, asking for help.
“They suggested having a blood drive right here,” Thomas said.
The agency sent a mobile blood unit out to the Summit Service Center at 7701 Lockheed Drive on July 19.
A dozen associates gave blood: Richard Bond, Isela Valdez, Margie Meraz, Mike Rhodes, Robert Buck, Mike Holguin, Dan Gomez, Sam Faraone, Amalia Rosas, Laura Avalos and Jose Alvarez.
Thomas was able to get some other nearby businesses to participate as well.
“It’s one of the things we can do for our community,” he says. “People are excited about doing it again. We will try to make it a regular deal.”
United Blood Services provided posters, t-shirts, ice cream and movie tickets to help promote the drive.
