The American Red Cross recognizes TVH Americas for the fifth year
TVH in the Americas (TVH) has been presented with the Outstanding Service Award from the American Red Cross through their Blood Partner Program for the fifth year in a row. With the turn of events seen this year, the Red Cross experienced thousands of canceled blood drives around the nation. That is what made TVH’s commitment and dedication to the Blood Partner Program so essential. By hosting three blood drives at their Olathe, KS location with the Red Cross, TVH was able to help save the lives of the most vulnerable in their community.
Through their blood drives and with the help of their amazing employees, a total of 129 units of blood was donated. This amount is the equivalent of helping 387 people in the community. TVH is looking forward to hosting its three annual blood drives again in 2021. With the need for blood donation so high around the nation, they are proud to be a part of the American Red Cross’s Blood Partner Program.
“The internal joy of helping others is what all the donors embrace and is what brings joy to the act of donation,” said Lucy Delsarto, Health and Wellness Coach at TVH. She went on to say, too often, we tell ourselves ‘there’s nothing I can do to make a difference,’ and that simply is not true. If you are interested in donating blood, you can do so any time with the Red Cross by visiting any of their Blood Centers across the country.
