When CAI associate, Michele Gates was asked to pick up the baton and coordinate regular blood drives for our local Lehigh Valley geography some 18 years ago, she did so willingly even though the thought of being stuck with a needle scared her. Why? Because helping to save the lives of people in our community matters to her.
Three times a year, CAI hosts a blood drive at their Allentown, PA corporate headquarters. Associates from the local area are invited to donate blood and do their part to help those in need. Each year these associates donate approximately 100 pints of blood.
Michele, who is passionate about getting new recruits for the program, particularly Millennials who have the ability to not just save a life now, but also well into the future, embodies the spirit of CAI Cares. CAI is thankful for her willingness to carry the baton year in and year out and for the many associates who generously give.
