this month to host their 3rd Annual Blood Drive
at three of its facilities. Blood donated through the events will help supply 27 hospitals across the Bay Area, including Washington Hospital and Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fremont.
annual Blood Drive will take place in July and has shown to be an incredible success in the past. “These blood drives embody the values of Fremont Bank, which brings our associates, clients and local residents together to make a difference in our community,” said Fremont Bank vice president Brian Hughes. “Our goal is for 100 people to donate blood, potentially benefiting up to 300 individuals.”
“We are thrilled that Fremont Bank is partnering with us again to help maintain a healthy blood supply for local hospitals,” said Jared Schultzman, regional communications manager with the American Red Cross.
According to the American Red Cross, more than 44,000 blood donations are needed every day to care for people in the United States. Donated blood has a limited shelf life, which means the supply must constantly be replenished in order to meet the needs of local hospitals.

July 21, 2015, Hayward Operations: 25151 Clawiter Rd., Hayward
