Gossamer Threads has been donating blood as part of Canadian Blood Services’ “Partners For Life” program for some time now. That said, we’ve had a lot of people join the GT team since we first started organizing company blood donations, and some of the newcomers were perhaps a tad nervous about the prospect. With that in mind, we arranged for a presentation from Canadian Blood Services to be given at GT HQ.
Gossamer Threads is now a member of ‘Partners for Life’ through the Canadian Blood Services, a program set up for corporate and community organizations to donate blood as a team. Each year, we commit to donating a pre-determined number of units, with each donation made by a staff member counting towards our company’s total. This past Wednesday was our first group visit to one of the clinics set up throughout the city!
