MATS Blood Drive 2012

“Give So That Others May Live”

The Trucking Solutions Group and the American Red Cross sponsor the Second Annual  Blood Drive at the Mid America Trucking Show.

LOUISVILLE, KY.- The Trucking Solutions Group is again partnering with the American Red Cross to sponsor its second blood drive at a major trucking show from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m on Friday, March 23, 2012 and again on Saturday March 24, 2012 during the Mid America Trucking Show.
Those attending the show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky. are invited to stop in booth #91470 and donate with no appointment needed.
“Whenever there is a crisis or a need within a community, truck drivers and others within the trucking industry are some of the first to step up and respond,” says Linda Caffee, professional driver and chairman of the Trucking Solutions Group Driver Health Council. “We’re all in this together! This blood drive provides the needed supplies to insure that the American Red Cross can respond when they are needed.”

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, which creates the need for 38,000 blood donations every day. Less than 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood making the goal of 38,000 donations per day a daunting challenge. Because blood cannot be manufactured, the American Red Cross depends on the generosity of its donors to maintain their supply.
