September 11, 2012 // Franchising.com // Employees and Sales Associates at Weichert, Realtors’ Morris Plains headquarters recently donated 62 units of blood at the company’s annual blood drive in support of the American Red Cross. The campus’s generous donation was used to help more than 180 patients in hospitals throughout the area during the critical summer months when the blood supply is typically low.
“We are honored to participate in a program that makes such a powerful impact in the local communities that we serve,” said Denise Smith, senior vice president of administration and operations for Weichert, Realtors. “In line with the Weichert culture, we are grateful to be able to make a difference for those in need.”
The blood drive is just one of the many community service initiatives in which Weichert’s employees and Sales Associates participate in an effort to be good neighbors in the towns where they live and work.
“Weichert’s willingness to host a summer blood drive each year helps us fulfill the ever-present need for blood in our community. It’s humbling when you consider that nationwide someone needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds, and most of us will need blood in our lifetime. It’s through generous donations like this that we are able to maintain the blood bank and support our local hospitals,” said Leslie Pittman-Smith, key account manager for the American Red Cross.
