CEC Columbus Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) — CEC iDEA, CEC Community, CEC Women, and CEC Fit — organized a blood drive in their office May 18. The event resulted in a donation of 22 units to the Greater Columbus Ohio Chapter of the Red Cross, exceeding its goal by two units.
The groups not only recruited donors from CEC, but from other employers throughout the office park and community. The event also provided an opportunity for individuals to sign up for a bone marrow registry called Be The Match®. Be The Match® is a community of donors, volunteers, health care professionals, and researchers who deliver cures by helping patients get the life-saving marrow transplant they need.
Special thanks to Buddy McMullen, Kayla Haman, Ashlee Balcerzak, Allison Bronchik, and Brendon Lemmex for their time and efforts in making this event a rousing success.
