Every two seconds, a patient in the United States is in need of blood. Since blood cannot be manufactured, this startling statistic underscores the crucial need for blood donations. One pint of blood can save up to three lives, so making a blood donation is a unique chance to save not one but multiple lives.
Peapack-Gladstone Bank makes donating blood a biannual company-wide effort. Each spring and fall, employees line up to give the gift of life. In conjunction with New York Blood Services, Peapack-Gladstone Bank recently held its 16th consecutive Employee Blood Drive at their Corporate Headquarters located at 500 Hills Drive, Bedminster. This year’s fall blood drive presented 69 donors, collecting 58 products.
Since 2006, Peapack-Gladstone Bank employees have been generous in the giving of their time through a selfless act that helps others in an unforgettable way. Thank you to all who donated as an ongoing gift to help those in need.
