Among the SourceOne employees who donated were, from left, Steve Prall, Fabrication
Coordinator; Dee Murray, Accounting Assistant; Chris Reed, Division Manager; Darin Reinke,
Tool Room Leadman; Jeff Bockoven, Quality Assurance; Harley Schuerman, Production
Superintendent; and Don Delaney, Production Associate.

SourceOne employees potentially saved lives in Lancaster and surrounding counties by donating 87 units of blood through Aug. 7 and Oct. 11 Community Blood Bank drives.

Of the 44 people who donated in August, about 35 were first-time blood donors, said Special Projects Coordinator and Event Organizer Ivan Reed. In October, 43 employees donated.

SourceOne substantially exceeded its goal of 30 donors during both events, earning a Certificate of Appreciation from the Blood Bank each time. The certificate is on display in every department.

“The high level of participation is just another great example of the dedicated and quality team of employees we have at SourceOne,” Reed said. “They enjoy helping the community and take pride in making a difference.”

Reed spearheaded the drives after seeing a news report about a critical blood supply shortage in Lincoln. An avid donor himself, he wanted to answer the need but can only donate every 16 weeks.

“I thought, ‘I can’t give any more right now, so maybe I can get my co-workers involved,’” Reed said.

SourceOne plans to hold a third blood drive in December, and Reed hopes to see participation continue to increase.

Ivan Reed, Special Projects Coordinator, organized the two companywide blood drives and has plans for a third.
