Congratulations to the RE/MAX Results Angola office on hosting its 15th annual blood drive for the American Red Cross of Northeast Indiana. Agents and staff worked many hours putting together the day-long event featuring door prizes, treats and a costume contest.
This year, the Red Cross brought three buses to handle the demand! There were 142 donors, with 133 units collected. That is a new record for the event, with a 25% increase over last year. Donors included agents and staff, clients and many people from the Angola community. According to the Red Cross, for each donor, 3 adult lives or 6 infant lives are saved.
The event committee for 2019 consisted of Brad Cookson, Desi Isa, Debbie Kinney, Christina Koher, Lexie Michael, Tracey Musser, Monica Rabe, Christy Thomson, and Doug Vanette. Many local businesses donated prizes for the event. The costume contest judges included Bill Harter (Steuben County Coroner), Stu Hamblen (Angola Police Chief), Richard Hickman (Mayor, City of Angola), Tyler Hartman (Owner, Anytime Fitness), and Michelle Clayton (Hallmark Home Mortgage).
“Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make the blood drive possible,” said Christy Thomson. “I am very grateful to the community for supporting this amazing event. It goes to show how amazing Steuben County is, when as a small town, we can impact so many lives!”
Todd Stock, co-owner of RE/MAX Results, praised the team’s generosity and dedication to community service, stating, “Giving back to our local communities is a core value of our company. The Angola blood drive is a perfect example of what our agents and staff can achieve working with community partners. They should be proud of their success in helping the Red Cross save lives.”
