Eastern Shipbuilding Group said it partnered with OneBlood to host a four-day blood drive at the shipbuilder’s Allanton and Nelson locations from November 19-22. Over the four-day drive, Eastern employees donated 342 units of blood, besting the previous record of 292, with 203 from Allanton and 139 from Nelson.

OneBlood, formally known as Northwest Florida Blood Bank, collects donations across the Gulf and Atlantic Florida and serves over 200 hospitals and healthcare centers across the same region with life-saving blood.

Amanda Fitzhugh, Eastern’s HR Generalist and OneBlood’s Robert E. Strickland, Jr., Manager of Donor Recruitment, planned the multiday blood drive at Eastern. Amanda suggested a turkey drawing for participating donors for each day of the drive. All donors also received a t-shirt for participating and were eligible for a drawing for a $25 gift card. Four donors won turkeys from OneBlood, while 20 employees won $25 gift cards from Eastern.

Eastern noted that with the success of this drive and previous drives at Eastern, it stands as a top overall producer for donated blood units in Northwestern Florida. The shipbuilding company extended thanks to everyone that contributed to the record breaking blood drive this holiday season.
