Tis the season to make a difference, and this season your blood donation can help make twice the difference for those in need.  The American Red Cross Blood Services Region and Xlear, Inc. have joined forces to help save lives and feed the hungry this holiday season.
 
The American Red Cross and Xlear, Inc. (pronounced Clear) are proud to announce The “Making a Xlear Difference” holiday campaign.  Xlear, Inc., a local Utah company, will donate up to $50,000 to the Community Action Food Bank in Provo by making a $25 contribution for every blood donation made to the American Red Cross in Utah, Wasatch and Summit Counties.
 
“We are thrilled to partner with Xlear, Inc. on such an impactful campaign” said JaLae Thompson, American Red Cross Utah Manager.  “Through this generous donation we can ensure patient needs are met and contribute to the greater community’s welfare this holiday season.” 
 
Schedule a donation appointment or call 1-800-RED CROSS for more information about this campaign or to find out more about sponsoring a blood drive in your area.
 
The Community Action Food Bank is the second largest food bank in Utah.  It distributes more than 2.3 million pounds of food annually in Utah, Summit, and Wasatch Counties.  In Utah every eight minutes someone needs blood.  The American Red Cross provides nearly half the blood products needed in the state.
