On March 9th, Performance Machine employees deviated from the usual routine of rolling up their sleeves and getting to work, and instead rolled up those sleeves to give blood at our first quarter blood drive, held at the PM facility in the American Red Cross Bloodmobile.
While motivations might have ranged anywhere from genuine altruism to free cookies and juice, when all was said and done, a small contingent of our own, one that was up 16% from last year, supplied the American Red Cross with sorely needed bags of blood, a need the ARC describes as “constant” on its’ website.
With each donation, an estimated three lives are saved, so much appreciation and thanks to our many heroes here at Performance Machine!
