Join Unyts and Pegula Sports and Entertainment in becoming a Workplace for Life

The Workplace for Life program is comprised of local, regional, and national companies and community-focused organizations of all kinds. Their shared goal is promoting a donation-friendly WNY by fostering education and creating opportunities for individuals to save lives through organ, eye, tissue and blood donation.

Those who join the Workplace for Life program will be asked to participate in a series of optional activities throughout the year. We would also encourage each to identify a point person at your company to work with Unyts. Some activities include:

 Blood Drive                            

 Unyts community events

 Organ Donor Registry Drive 

 Employee Volunteerism

 Lunch and Learn Presentation

 Fundraising initiative, such as a dress down day

The Workplace for Life program will launch during the summer of 2017 with the One Buffalo Challenge for Life. Partners will be asked to schedule a blood and donor registry drive between June 26th and August 19th, and will be provided with a toolkit of materials to help promote the drive and the importance of the registry. They will also have the option to bring in a speaker from Unyts or have an information table. Pegula Sports and Entertainment has generously donated a number of great prizes for those who sign onto the program this summer.
