First Annual Starr Group Blood Drive is a Success!
When the idea for a blood drive was first proposed in October 2015, a donation commitment was needed from a minimum of 30 people just to secure a date for the event. The Starr Group staff stepped up. Once the date was set, a liaison from TSG worked closely with a Red Cross Recruitment manager to coordinate logistics.
From recruiting donors to volunteers, The Starr Group Producers and CSRs and Operations support staff coordinated to help with set up and take down the day of the event. Many employees brought in baked goods including homemade cookies and brownies. At noon, Mary Starr arranged for a massive delivery of Ned’s pizza for staff, volunteers, Red Cross workers and Donors. Staff also volunteered to work the registration table and canteen area.
On February 4, 2016, the entire first floor of The Starr Group office building was decorated with colorful signs and red balloons for the Blood Drive. Our first donor of the day was none other than The Starr Group president and CEO, Tim Starr. “I haven’t donated blood since college,” he said. He acknowledged with his busy schedule, the Blood Drive onsite was a great opportunity to donate.
