Horrocks Engineers Sponsor a Successful Blood Drive for American Red Cross

Posted in Press Release on June 5, 2012 by johnnihorrocks

Blood Battle 2012 turned out to be a fierce, but friendly competition between the cities of Northern Utah County. Horrocks sponsored and hosted co-hosted the second-annual drive this year; our energetic campaigning resulting in representation from eight cities. A total of 103 units of blood were collected from 88 people, including 20 first-time donors. City of Eagle Mountain took home the trophy with 38 donors in all. Pleasant Grove, Horrocks’ headquarters, took a close second with 35. In the end, everybody won, together meeting this year’s overall goal of 100+ units collected.

Horrocks was proud of the Eagle Mountain community’s willingness to save lives. As a gift to the City for their remarkable efforts, we wanted to go beyond the trophy and offer an award of service as a token of the company’s gratitude. In that spirit, Horrocks provided many of its employees as volunteers for the city’s popular Pony Express Days.

Horrocks looks forward to inspiring even more participants and collecting even more blood next year. We know how critical it is for the American Red Cross, the 31 hospitals it serves, and every single patient whose lives are saved because those fortunate enough to be healthy take the time to donate blood. Horrocks want to thank all of the other cities involved in the drive this year, including Lehi, Cedar Hills, American Fork, Lindon, Highland, and Alpine. Until Blood Battle 2013!
