  • Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Consilium Staffing, Your Partner in Locum Tenens, recently held a blood drive for Carter BloodCare, yielding enough blood to help save 81 lives.

“The blood supply belongs to the community. Carter BloodCare is the steward of the gifts we collect from volunteer donors,” said Michelle Johnson, Vice President for Corporate and Community Resources. “We also appreciate that the company recognizes blood donation as an act of service to one’s community.”

This is the second time that Consilium Staffing has partnered with Carter BloodCare for its employees to donate blood through the firm’s Consilium Cares initiative.

“I’m very proud that such a large number of our employees donated to this cause,” said Matt Baade, Executive Vice President of Consilium Staffing. “We know Carter BloodCare is the supplier for many of our local hospitals and clinics, and that provides us the opportunity to give back to the community which we serve.”

Carter BloodCare needs to see 1100 donors a day to maintain a safe and sufficient blood supply for North, Central and East Texas. At any time, only 38 percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, with less than four percent actually giving.
