Recently, Barbco sponsored it’s first ever blood drive with Vitalant, a national company that is in the business of taking blood donations and dispersing it locally to people in need. Vitalant set up the site inside the office area of Barbco. Staff from Vitalant was at Barbco for around 5 hours and was able to collect 10 units of blood which in the end, can help up to 30 patients. Vitalant staff was very pleased with the level of cooperation they received from the individuals who donated as well as the office staff that they encountered at Barbco and plan to work with the company three to four times a year for future blood drives. At this time, the next drive will be taking place sometime during the month of May. Barbco was incredibly pleased with the entire process and with the guidance from Vitalant, will make this a regular event.
