On Tuesday, August 23rd, 2106, Breckenridge Grand Vacations and Beaver Run Resort partnered to host a blood drive to benefit the Bonfils Blood Center.
The drive was coordinated by Deb Edwards, the Program Manager of Breckenridge Grand Vacation’s philanthropic program BGV Gives, and Jessica Stackhouse, the Conference Services Manager at Beaver Run Resort.
A total of 31 donors, 26 of which were BGV employees, participated in giving blood at the drive. It takes about one hour to complete the screening and have one pint of blood collected, which is a relatively small amount of time to sacrifice in support of saving lives. For every pint of blood collected, 3 patients will benefit from receiving red blood cells, platelets and/or plasma. That brings the number of patients who will be helped as a result of this blood drive to 93 people.
