It's fair to say that none of us could have expected 2020 to be such a wild ride. There's been so much uncertainty, grief, anger, and frustration. We've also seen joy - new babies born, new members added to the Accruit team, and we certainly appreciate the silver lining of knowing that we're still here doing the work we love when so many have been forced to close down their businesses either temporarily or permanently.
One of the biggest needs in our communities right now are blood donations. With so many offices closed and safer-at-home orders, regularly scheduled blood drives have not been able to occur, and this has created a supply shortage nationwide. However, blood donation centers are still open, hosting safe places for people to donate blood. This holiday season Accruit is participating in a Virtual Blood through American Red Cross. We are proud to be giving back to the community and to those in need after a tough year!
We set a goal of donating 100 pints of blood between December 1st, 2020 and March 1, 2021. Will you join us?
The process is simple:
- Pledge to donate on our page
- Make an appointment at your local blood donation center
- Snap a selfie and post it to social using the hashtag #AccruitLove
- Pat yourself on the back for giving the gift of life
As this year winds down, our team wants to bring the communities we live and work in together for a common good. It's one of the best ways we can think of to do something as a team when we are working from our homes around the country.
A quick note regarding safety measures the Red Cross is taking during COVID-19:
For the safety of our donor community and in accordance with CDC guidelines, all donors are required to wear a face covering or mask. Please bring a face covering or mask to your donation. If you do not have one, a mask will be provided to you.
