It’s as easy as squeezing a rubber ball
Co-op Communications Director Allan Reetz became the second Co-op employee to jump on the platelet donation campaign. Reetz said it was by far the easiest thing he’d done all year. He added that, “I got to hang out for 90 minutes with nothing to do but eat, drink, read, watch TV, surf the net, and occasionally squeeze a little rubber ball.”
Empty donation chairs = lost opportunities
During the 90 minutes it took for Allan to make his donation, three other donation stations were idle. That is a problem we can solve. Platelet are critically needed by patients at Dartmouth Hitchcock. A team at the Co-op is working hard to help Dartmouth increase the number of donations they receive. Join the campaign. Earn Co-op gift cards valued up to $25. Help us fill the empty chairs.
Nearly instant impact
Allan said that moments after he donated at DHMC that the nurse was already on the phone alerting others that a fresh donation was in its way to serve patients in need. Please give today or tomorrow or in the coming weeks. Your good health will benefit others within days of your donation.
