WCG to Host April 10 Blood Drive in Colorado Springs

WCG Inc., located in Colorado Spring’s Flying Horse neighborhood, is hosting a community blood drive on Friday, April 10. The tax and accounting firm is partnering with First National Bank of Monument, The Club at Flying Horse and Vitalant to provide a safe and convenient way to donate blood. According to Vitalant, “Hundreds of blood drives have been canceled across the country resulting in a loss of more than 130,000 units of blood.”

Tina Watson, CPA, founding Partner of WCG, “with empty grocery shelves and people scrambling to balance child duties, work and chores, it is easy to forget about basic country needs. Blood is one of them; yesterday, today and tomorrow. We are in a wonderful location, and have plenty of space for a mobile blood drive.”

Per Vitalant’s questions and answers, “blood donation does not impact or weaken a donor’s immune system.” They continue in response to safety, “our staff follow rigorous safety and disinfection protocols at all blood drives and donation centers. These include wearing gloves and personal protective gear, wiping down donor-touched areas after every collection, using sterile single-use collection sets for every donation/collection, and arm scrubbing for 30 seconds.”

Eligible blood donors are encouraged to read safety information provided by WCG and Vitalant, and also schedule a donor time on Friday, April 10. Both are available on WCG’s website at wcginc.com/drive. Should scheduling difficulties arise, please contact WCG directly for assistance.

WCG is also an official Care and Share drop-off location. Donors are also encouraged to bring food as part of their blood donation.
