Autopro is Proud to Donate Blood

Autopro’s Bleeders Club was initiated by a staff member in 2013, and since then we have donated over 200 units of blood. Every two months the Canadian Blood Services Life Bus picks up staff members who are donating that month and brings them down to the clinic where they happily bleed for this very worthy cause.

Sean Mascarenhas, a senior Engineer at Autopro and one of our regular blood donors, recently shared why he donates. “I donate blood because there is such a great need. The short term pain and inconvenience is nothing compared to the feeling that my donation could help save a life!

Between January 1st and December 31st, 2016 the Autopro team donated a total of 52 units! We surpassed our target of 45 units of blood and look forward to doing that again in 2017.

Last week, Nancy Murray, Marketing Manager, and Ashley Robinson, Marketing Coordinator, from the Calgary Autopro office attended the Partners For Life appreciation breakfast held at The Calgary Zoo, hosted by the Canadian Blood Services team. It was wonderful to see all of the organizations that have committed to be Partners For Life, and a great reminder of why we continue to donate blood.

Help spread the word to friends, co-workers or family members and share the gift of blood donation!
