Grace Ames Charitable/Community, Press Release

Fulcrum Associates, a leading construction management firm in southern New Hampshire, will sponsor a community blood drive for the American Red Cross on September 30, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at LaBelle Winery, 345 NH-101 in Amherst, New Hampshire. To reserve a blood donation slot online, please visit www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/find-drive and use sponsor code “FULCRUM” in the search field.

“Giving back to and supporting the community is a value our company is lucky to share as a team. Now more than ever, resources are limited and we all have a responsibility to help as much as we can,” said Karen Massone, director of human resources, Fulcrum Associates. “We encourage those who are able to join us in this simple and free, yet immensely impactful, act of giving blood to help save lives. Hosted at LaBelle, an award-winning winery, bistro restaurant, and wedding and events facility, this is also a great opportunity to stick around after donating to enjoy a meal at the bistro and support an incredible local business.”

Blood donation timeslots are available every 15 minutes. All donors will have their blood tested for COVID-19 antibodies. Additionally, all donors will receive a free t-shirt, a free haircut coupon from Sport Clips and be entered into a raffle to win a gift bag provided by the American Red Cross.

Donors of all blood types are needed, particularly those with types O-negative, B-negative and A-negative. According to the Red Cross, type O-negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and is often used to treat trauma patients. Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims.

“There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life,” Massone said. “With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.”
