Fremont Bank Hosts 2nd Annual Blood Drive, Doubles Locations to Six

FREMONT, Calif., May 29, 2014–Fremont Bank, a leading full-service community bank in California announced today that it is partnering with the American Red Cross next month to host their 2nd Annual Blood Drive at six 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.
This 2nd annual Blood Drive will take place in June and has been doubled as a result of the overwhelming response in participation by bank associates.  “These blood drives embody the values of Fremont Bank, which brings our associates, clients and local residents together to make a difference in our communities,” said Fremont Bank Vice President Brian Hughes. “Our goal is for 200 people to donate blood, potentially benefiting up to 600 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. “The fact that Fremont Bank will host six blood drives its second year as a sponsor is significant and shows the bank’s commitment to making a difference.”
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.

June 9, 2014, Fremont Main Branch: 39150 Fremont Blvd., Fremont
