TORRANCE, CA - Apr 24, 2009
Torrance-based manufacturer Pelican™ Products recently had an employee blood drive where they collected enough blood to save 159 lives according to the American Red Cross.
“Pelican products are built to save lives every day but when we see our employees going above and beyond the call of duty in this way, it just reinforces the pride I take in the people here,” said Lyndon Faulkner, Pelican Products, President and CEO.
Torrance City Councilman and Local Red Cross Director of Blood Services Cliff Numark was on hand to thank the employees personally for their service. “It only takes a few minutes to save a life,” said Councilman Numark. “And Pelican Products is a great example of corporate responsibility in our city.”
Pelican Products plans to have another blood drive on November 6th, 2009.
