During the cold, dark days of January and February, a light shone brightly upon those who have helped us so much during the past year! We hosted eleven Premier Partner luncheons in the DFW (Irving, McKinney, Fort Worth and Dallas), East Texas (Tyler, Longview, Paris and Palestine) and Central Texas (Mexia, Killeen and Waco) regions to honor and appreciate our drive coordinators. They are the individuals who organize and promote the blood drives in their companies, schools and places of worship. They give so much of their time and effort throughout the year and we are so thankful to partner with such wonderful organizations.
We could not do what we do, without the support of our drive coordinators and that is why the purpose of these luncheons was to not only give thanks to our Premier Partners for a great 2013, but also to encourage you to continue in stride in 2014. Individual goals and commitments for the year ahead were set, and we will be with you along the way to keep you informed of ways to stay on track! Though hosting a blood drive is usually what comes to mind first, there are many other opportunities to get involved, such as recruiting new donors or referring a friend to become a drive coordinator.
Our Premier Partners were honored and recognized during these luncheons for their efforts based on four different tier levels. The four program tiers are based on points that are earned throughout the year: Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Making it to the platinum level is no easy feat, but it is a rewarding one. If you didn’t hit platinum level in 2013 don’t worry; you can do it in 2014! Don’t forget, you can earn extra points by hosting a blood drive during a time of need, like summer or winter, or by adding automation to your blood drive.
There is no better time to start than NOW. Keep up with your 2014 goals and book your summer blood drives today!
