SCB and the National Blood Center under the Thai Red Cross Society kick off 2020 SCB blood donation campaign
In cooperation with the National Blood Center under the Thai Red Cross Society, Siam Commercial Bank (SCB) recently kicked off the 2020 SCB blood donation campaign. Under the theme of “Plus 1: More Donations, More Blood, More Lives Saved,” the 2020 blood donation campaign is inviting the public to donate blood one or more times during the year so as to keep an adequate blood supply on hand for patients in need nationwide. National Blood Center Director Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dootchai Chaiwanichsiri and SCB First Executive Vice President and Head of the CSR Function Araya Phuphanich presided over the campaign opening ceremony and blood donation event at Mahisorn Hall, SCB Head Office. On this occasion, SCB presented campaign posters to the National Blood Center to help promote blood donation among the public. At the event, those who cannot donate blood could also be givers by donating money for the procurement of supplies for blood donation procedures, including blood type testing kits, needles, and bags.
SCB First Executive Vice President and Head of the CSR Function Araya Phuphanich said, “Since 1996, SCB and the National Blood Center under the Thai Red Cross Society have engaged in SCB Blood Donation activities to maintain an adequate blood supply for patients in need. We have raised awareness about voluntary blood donation among our people, customers, and the public. Blood donation offers the opportunity for you to help others, as each blood donation can help save as many as 3 other lives. As a result of last year’s campaign, SCB delivered a total figure of 63.8 million cc of blood from SCB locations, mobile units, and activities held in collaboration with the National Blood Center.”
SCB people, customers, and the public are invited to donate blood every 3 months throughout the year.
