FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — OneBlood recently paid a visit to Uniweld Products Inc.’s headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to receive blood donations from willing and able employees. Uniweld hosts company blood drives at its headquarters twice each year, providing employees with the opportunity to give to those in need and perhaps save a life.
According to OneBlood.org, “On Jan. 27, 2012, three of Florida’s independent, not-for-profit blood centers — Community Blood Centers of Florida Inc. (CBCF), Florida’s Blood Centers Inc. (FBC), and Florida Blood Services Inc. (FBS) — came together” and, after more than one year of extensive collaboration and planning, OneBlood Inc. was established. OneBlood’s service area includes Tampa Bay, South and Southeast Florida, the Orlando metro area and surrounding Central Florida counties, parts of Southwest Florida, Pensacola and Tallahassee, and some parts of Southern Georgia and Alabama.
