Have you ever thought, “I’m not making a difference in this life?” Have you thought that and had no idea where to even begin? What if we said you could take less than an hour out of one day, and save the lives of 3 people! Here’s the easy part, all you would need to do is donate blood. Paulding Putnam Electric Co-op (PPEC) invites you to make an hour appointment to save the lives of three others. It could be the most important appointment you ever make!
One of Paulding Putnam Electric Co-op’s core principles is “Concern for Community”. When we found out the American Red Cross was in dire need of blood due to recent natural disasters, we knew we needed to assist them, but we can’t do it alone. This is why we are asking community members and our own Co-op members to sign up for time slots to donate. We held our first blood drive on January 24th and ended up saving 99 lives. Blood drives are happening all throughout the region. We encourage you to sign up for one by clicking the sign-up button listed above. This will take you to a portal where you’ll be able to register and reserve a time slot. You can also, participate in Rapid Pass where you can save time and answer many of the pre-draw interview questions before your appointment. (Click the button below)
Every day, hospital patients undergoing treatments for cancer may depend on blood being there for their ongoing care. Leukemia and other cancers can cause anemia and internal bleeding, chemotherapies and radiations can lower blood counts. Transfusions of red blood cells and platelets can help save a patient’s life, or dramatically improve the quality of their life from day to day.
By donating, you can make a difference. Your donation may give someone another day to spend with their loved ones, and even more, a second chance at life.
