Points West Community Bank is pleased to announce a recent blood drive event at its Windsor location has resulted in a 13-liter donation to benefit UCHealth. The contribution has the potential to save the lives of more than 26 individuals in need, as reported by calculations from the American Red Cross.
“The opportunity to save a life is truly priceless, and at Points West we believe that the biggest investment we can make is in our community, ” said Mark Brase, President of Points West Community Bank. “We had an incredible turnout for the donation event with a full sign-up list. It’s so important for our community to donate during a time when blood is needed due to COVID-19 and it is humbling to witness the capabilities of our community when we come together for a cause.”
The blood drive event is one of many efforts made possible through ‘Points West CARES,’ a charitable program developed by the community bank to serve the areas it calls home across the tri-state area of Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska. Points West CARES is built on the company’s core values of Community, Advancement, Reinvestment, Environment and Service.
“Prosperity and preservation take many forms, and it’s important to us that we support local vitality across all aspects of life, not just from a financial perspective,” said Brase. “We hope to inspire others in our communities to care for one another in any way possible, especially during these uncertain times.”
