SSI Hosts Red Cross Blood Drive Novant Health Free Mammogram Screening
Manassas Park, VA – October 5, 2015 Storage Strategies, Inc. (SSI) recently hosted a blood drive for the American Red Cross and free mammogram screening clinic in conjunction with Novant Health at SSI’s Career Resource Center in Manassas Park, VA. The blood drive was a success and SSI intends to host more in the future. Steve Mackie, the owner of SSI, commented after he donated at the blood drive, “I have been a regular blood donor since high school and I’m very pleased to have our company encourage others to give the gift of life.” Mary Moore, SSI’s Office Manager, planned and coordinated the event. Moore commented, “I am amazed at the number of people who are willing to spend their time giving back to their communities.” The Manassas Park Youth Little League allowed SSI to use its snack pavilion nearby where SSI provided free refreshments including hot dogs, chips, bottled water, and candy. SSI orchestrated this as a community event including Novant Health to conduct free mammogram screenings, Manassas Park Community Center, and Manassas Park Department of Social Services to share information about available services. The Manassas Park Police Department also participated with a display of their pink Breast Cancer Awareness police car.
The American Red Cross provides a vital lifesaving service collecting blood donations.
