2011 Blood Drive

August 30, 2011- The AGC’s Build & Serve Committee chose as one of their charitable projects, a city-wide Blood Drive on August 30th in partnership with the San Diego Blood Bank.  Build & Serve’s tenet is to provide a venue for AGC members to “give back” to the community. AGC members gave back in a big way…they gave the gift of life! Co-Chairs Dave Carlin, Soltek Pacific, and Pam Scholefield, Scholefield Construction Law were pleased with the results. "The summer months are a critical time to hold a blood drive, and the construction industry's outpouring of support was tremendous."  The Blood Drive was held simultaneously at four locations: AGC offices (35 pints collected), Prava Construction (37 pints collected), T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc., (31 pints collected), and TC Construction Co. Inc. (37 pints collected) (Terry Cameron pictured).  The 140 pints collected represent about 40% of the daily needs at the San Diego Blood Bank.  At each site, there were Site Coordinators who organized everything for the Blood Drive at their respective locations; Chris Klemaske, T.B. Penick & Sons; Sandy Weeks, TC Construction; and Glenn Torrez, PRAVA Construction

2011 TOTAL - 140 pints collected!!
