Sharpe Extends American Red Cross SleevesUp Campaign through 2021
Last March, Sharpe Interior Systems, Inc. started “Sharpe Sleeves Up”, a year-long campaign to support the American Red Cross with blood and cash donations. We had three goals in mind when starting this campaign: (1) provide lifesaving blood for people in need, (2) provide financial support for one of the biggest humanitarian organizations in the country, and (3) provide educational information to Sharpe’s network of employees, family, friends and industry partners. We also hoped our campaign would continue beyond its timeline, impacting volunteers in a way that would change their lives and their understanding of community service.
Sharpe SleevesUp launched on March 1, 2020. Little did we know, just a few short weeks after its launch, the world would be dealing with a global health emergency, COVID-19, and almost instantly, over 95% of the American Red Cross blood drives had been canceled. We realized this campaign was ambitious, but with a passion to succeed, and in true Sharpe fashion, we decided to continue with this life saving mission. We knew we could not predict the road ahead, but we were confident in our ability to learn, plan and execute.
Currently, Sharpe SleevesUp has received over 360 pledges, volunteers have donated over 280 pints of blood, and Sharpe has donated over $28,000 to the American Red Cross.
Sharpe SleevesUp is literally helping to save lives. The need for blood is never ending and it is because of these reasons, we have decided to extend Sharpe SleevesUp through the end of 2021.
THANK YOU, to all the volunteers who have already pledged and donated blood. We encourage you, and those who have not, to consider supporting Sharpe SleevesUp by making a blood donation. For every pint of blood you donate, Sharpe will donate $100 to the American Red Cross in your name!
Sharpe Interior Systems, Inc. is more than just drywall. We are a people-focused organization with a culture of giving back to our community. This is who we are and we know it is the right thing to do.
Please spread the word to your family, friends, co-workers and industry partners. Your support is appreciated.
Thank you Sharpe employees, family, friends and industry partners:
