On Monday, June 11, 2012, Indy Honeycomb treated it’s employees to a grill-out lunch in anticipation of Hoxworth Bloodmobile’s arrival at Indy Honeycomb. This was the first of what will now become an annual event by Indy Honeycomb to help Hoxworth Blood Center with it’s mission to collect blood from 350 volunteer blood donors and 40 volunteer platelet donors each day to meet the needs of tri-state patients. The 14 pints of blood that were donated by Indy Honeycomb employees will go on to help save 42 lives.
“We may serve a global market but we are still a community business. Our employees demonstrate exceptional character by participating in charitable causes throughout the year and I am proud to support those efforts,” said Steve Barnett, President of Indy Honeycomb.
Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati (UC), is the only blood center for the greater Cincinnati area. Serving a 17-county area in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, Hoxworth collects, tests, processes and distributes blood and blood components to 31 hospitals and medical centers.
