35 Minnesota employees roll up their sleeves

Minnesota Blood DriveOn May 28, 35 CNP employees like Kathy Michals, HR generalist (pictured right) supported two Memorial Blood Center blood drives, coordinated by Dave Muller, manager of pricing and product development, and Mike Rogers, HSP sales manager, in Minneapolis.

The Memorial Blood Center serves more than 30 hospitals in the Twin Cities metro area, northern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin. “It’s rewarding for me to see the LaSalle Plaza employees support the blood drives each time we have one. This year we are having five drives at LaSalle Plaza,” said Muller. “I was extremely proud that we exceeded our donor goal!” added Rogers.

Just one pint of blood can save up to three lives. Everyday 32,000 pints of donated blood are used in the United States.
