This summer, Source employees have been making an effort to give back to the community in a number of ways. Source hosted a blood drive at the Golden office on June 23, and this past Saturday, July 16, a group of Source employees participated in a Habitat for Humanity group work day.
This was Source’s second year hosting a Bonfils blood drive and we are very proud of all the Source employees who took the time out of their busy schedule to donate blood.
Bonfils is local to Colorado and provides a majority of Colorado’s total blood supply. They distribute blood to around 100 hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the state of Colorado. They also supply blood to the U.S. military and to those in need in the event of a national emergency.
At the Source blood drive, Bonfils was able to collect 15 pints of blood, with 7 donations coming from first-time blood donors! Each donation can save and enhance the lives of up to three people, so Source’s donations alone have the potential to save up to 45 lives!
Source also participated in a group work day with Habitat for Humanity this past weekend. On Saturday, July 16, a group of Source employees participated in a critical repair of a home in Denver. They all volunteered their time for a full day from 8 AM to 3:30PM to work on repairs in the home.
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that builds new houses that are safe and affordable, as well as renovates homes that are in need of repair in order to maintain the safety of the home. Habitat partners with low-income families to give them a decent, safe, and affordable place to live.
