PICO RIVERA, Calif. — Full-line furniture manufacturer Amini Innovation Corp. recently hosted a blood drive at its corporate offices in Pico Rivera in conjunction with the City of Hope.
Sponsored in response to the local and national appeal for blood donors following a two-year record low blood supply, more than 60 members of the AICO team along with local businesses were able to donate blood.
“Giving back to the community is a top priority, and we will continue to … provide a platform for our employees to actively participate in this noble cause,” said CEO Michael Amini.
“The need for donors is greater than ever,” stated Martin Ploy, president of AICO. Ploy continued, “Donating one pint of blood can save up to three lives on average.”
