That's right! Thus far, JASPER Associates have donated over 100 pints of blood in the last two days! Jasper Engines & Transmissions is once again hosting blood drives for the American Red Cross at not just one, but all three remanufacturing facilities. Donations from the Crawford facility's single-day and Jasper's two-day event have produced a combined total of 128 pints with the Willow Springs drive scheduled for tomorrow.
Here are some interesting facts about blood donations:
• An average adult has about 10 pints of blood and roughly one pint is given during a donation
• Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood
• The actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes
• A single donation can save up to three lives.
Thanks again to all of our Great JASPER Associates who have or will be donating. This is just another example of how our Associates are "Doing it Right!"
