GLENDALE, CA, August 21, 2007 – As the holiday season approaches, 4over, Inc. gives back to the community in a special way. 4over hosted a Blood Drive for the Providence Blood Donor Center. The onsite blood donation event consisted of donor registration, eligibility application, testing, and finally drawing blood. There were also refreshments for the donors for a quick boost, before going back to work.
"We realize that there is a big shortage of blood in the Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. We simply hope our small donations makes up for some of the shortage and set a good trend of blood donation among the community." Said Zarik Megerdichian, CEO.
With a group of about 75 4over employees who volunteered to donate, the event created a very warm and fun environment and encouraged more people to join the cause. Since so many of 4over employees volunteered to donate blood, two full days had to be scheduled for this event.
Sindy Hibarger, Director of Development from Providence Blood Donor Center was extremely pleased by the positive response from 4over employees. She stated, “We are excited to have 4over involved with making this event a joyful one for our staff. We also appreciate their generosity and warmth. I am sure that many people will also appreciate this generosity when they need blood. We collected a total of 50 pints which will potentially help to save up to 100 lives. 4over's kindness is greatly appreciated and we are looking forward to coming back soon.”
