We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~Winston Churchill

According to the American Red Cross, one blood donation can save up to three lives. On Aug 24, 2010, the employees, associates, and friends of Agape Senior teamed up to help replenish depleted blood supplies. The event took place on the West Columbia campus on Leaphart Road.

Agape Senior employees from the West Columbia campus came, along with other employees from across the Midlands. Employees from the Harbison campus in Irmo, the Kathwood campus in Forest Acres, and the Lexington campus gathered to give the gift of life. The volunteers rolled up their sleeves and within four hours had donated 44 units of blood. The total donation has the potential to save 132 lives.

Every person that donated seemed to have a different story for making the commitment to be there that day. Some donors had never given before. One donor had not donated in over fifteen years. It was truly an amazing team effort to meet and exceed the goal set for the event by the Red Cross.

Agape Senior is no stranger to supporting worthwhile causes. The company is committed to involvement in the local communities in which it has operations. Agape Senior has a fundamental philosophy to empower its employees to look for and become part of the solution for any problem. Read more about Agape Senior.
