Since the 1990s, Sam Houston Electric Cooperative has been hosting blood drives in partnership with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center, and is a multiple winner of the Center’s “Path for Success” award in recognition of the Co-op’s regularly scheduled blood drives.
In 2011, the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center presented their small business of the year award to Dana Massey, Sam Houston Electric Cooperative executive secretary. Massey received the award for her efforts not only organizing blood drives throughout the year for Sam Houston EC, but also recruiting donors.
According to the American Red Cross, only a fraction of those who are able to donate blood do so. Visit the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center’s website to learn more about how you can help save a life by donating blood.
