COTG Hosts Blood Drive with American Red Cross
Bolingbrook, Illinois – February 19, 2015 – In support of the constant
need for blood locally, COTG - A Xerox Company held its annual Blood Drive on Monday,
February 16. This marks the fifth year that COTG has hosted a blood drive to give back
to the local community.
COTG employees helped the community by donating 26 pints of blood, which can potentially
save the lives of 78 patients in area hospitals.
“Giving blood is so important because it cannot be manufactured; it can only come from
volunteer blood donors,” said Phillip Sanfratello, American Red Cross Account Manager.
“The winter can be a critical time, where blood donations dip due to the weather and
“This is a time when we rely on business partners like COTG to help maintain the blood
supply and keep it stable for patients in need,” he said.
