Morey’s Piers in the Wildwoods, NJ hosted an employee blood drive Tuesday, July 31 to help the Red Cross with the blood shortage. According to the Red Cross and the Press of Atlantic City, blood levels are the lowest they have been in 15 years.
“We decided to host a blood drive to help the local community. When we heard about the blood shortage, it reinforced our desire to take action,” said Will B. Morey, Waterpark Operations Manager. “We had to start a waitlist as we had more associates, both domestic and international, step up to donate than we had anticipated.”
From lifeguards to full time staff, Morey’s Piers employees were happy to take this opportunity to help the Red Cross.
“This opportunity gives our lifeguards a chance to save lives not only in our waterparks, but throughout our community,” said Denise Beckson, Director of Waterpark Operations.
