Choptank Transport was named 2nd highest point winner in its size category for the Delmarva Summer Blood Challenge Award. The Challenge ended September 15, 2012 and the awards dinner was held Friday, September 27th. Many employees donated blood within the alotted time period and some of them twice, but even more notable was the number of Choptank employees that joined the blood bank of Delmarva for the first time. Everyone's participation was extraordinary and greatly appreciated.
The Blood Bank of Delmarva provides blood and blood products to 16 hospitals on the Delmarva Peninsula. More than 350 blood donors are needed every day in this area. This year, about 20,000 patients will need blood transfusions. Choptank was proud to be able to contribute to this extremely important group.
