Greg Eastmer reached out to Tracy Masse, HR Manager, Taylor Devices in the Spring of 2018 to inquire about hosting a blood drive with Unyts. “The timing was perfect, I was in the process of planning a Benefits and Wellness Fair.  After a couple of phone calls and emails we had our dates set!  Greg made everything very easy.  They supplied flyers, tent cards, posters, etc. to help promote our drive.
 
Unyts participated in our Wellness Fair which helped educate our employees about the process and importance of a blood donation. They also kicked off the drive with a “Lunch and Learn” meeting which gave our employees an opportunity to ask questions, learn about Unyts and its mission and overall helped to boost participation. More than 26% of our staff participated and many were first time donors.
 
Taylor is proud to have partnered with Unyts in helping to save lives in our community! This has been a great opportunity for our employees and company to give back locally. We are excited to have already booked two more dates for the upcoming year! Thank you Unyts for everything you do for our community."
