InRoads Credit Union Hosts Blood Drive in St. Helens, Oregon

As part of its monthly Random Acts of Kindness, InRoads Credit Union hosted the Red Cross bloodmobile on Sept. 28, at its St. Helens administration building. Thirty participants, including credit union employees and their family members, gave blood during the workday.

The credit union and its employees are always looking for opportunities to give back to the community, so hosting a blood drive made perfect sense.

“They say that every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood,” stated InRoads President and CEO, Brooke Van Vleet. “Lifesaving care can start with just one person making a donation. This blood drive helped make that happen.”

According to the Red Cross, blood donations for whole blood, red cells, platelets, or plasma, are vital for surgeries, cancer treatments, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries.

InRoads Credit Union employees and their families were proud to donate to the Red Cross, including Addison Hiatt, LIVE Teller Supervisor at InRoads Credit Union.

“This was such an easy and worthwhile thing to do,” Hiatt said. “This is a great way to help out the community and do something good for those around me.”
