May 17, 2017

On May 1, BE&K Building Group’s Charlotte Office participated in the Keep Pounding Blood Drive hosted by the Carolina Panthers, Carolinas HealthCare System and Community Blood Center of the Carolinas. The blood drive was held at the Levine Children’s Hospital in its Keep Pounding Auditorium.

"The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas serves an essential role in helping fill the critical need for life-saving blood by local patients, such as those at Levine Children's Hospital. The team is proud to support this important effort," said Riley Fields, the Carolina Panthers director of community relations. "Panthers fans have a strong history of supporting the team's community outreach efforts, and this is a wonderful opportunity for fans to help give the gift of life."

One pint can impact up to three patients located in one of the area’s 27 local hospitals. In addition, for every pint of blood collected, the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas is making a financial contribution to the Keep Pounding Fund to support cancer research efforts at Carolinas Medical Center.

Special recognition goes to Mike Baumbach as he has donated a total of 28 units of blood to date equaling 3.5 gallons.
