BRUNEI Press Sdn Bhd held a Blood Donation Drive yesterday.
Carrying the message, “Give Blood, Save Lives,” the blood donation drive took place at the Brunei Press Commercial Printing Services office.
Organised as part of the company’s 2014 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, the drive saw staff from Brunei Press and QAF Subsidiary give blood.
In addition to being part of the company’s CSR programme, the blood donation drive was also held as a way of giving back to the community and help the RIPAS Blood Bank.
Speaking on the drive, Reggie See, the General Manager of Brunei Press said, “We consider this a very important part of our CSR. Blood is something that is needed for many emergencies, and it is a precious gift from our staff to society.”
He also highlighted that the blood donation drive is now officially an annual activity for Brunei Press.
Next for Brunei Press under its CSR programme is a “Recycling Day”, which will see the company’s staff bring in recyclables like plastic, aluminium cans and various other metals.
This initiative, the General Manager shared, will be taking place in the middle of June, and all funds generated from it will go to charity.
