The award recognizes the number of donors per blood drive. Cross Creek Ranch hosted 12 drives last year, averaging 35 donors at each.
“Cross Creek has been an incredible community partner through the pandemic and beyond,” said Cameron Palmer, Public Relations Specialist for the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. “They increased their drives from quarterly to monthly during the pandemic when the community heavily relied on blood drives. Even with increased frequency, their participation remains high.”
The donations saved 1,482 lives in the greater community, Palmer said. The Fulshear community is set to beat that number in 2022.
“This award belongs as much to the people who stepped up to donate as it does us,” said Rob Bamford, Vice President, General Manager of Cross Creek Ranch. “We are happy to help the efforts of Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center to save lives and look forward to continuing our partnership.”
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is the only blood provider to Houston and its surrounding communities. The non-profit serves more than 170 hospitals and health care institutions.
Cross Creek Ranch supports various non-profits throughout the year. Most recently, the community donated nearly $20,000 to six Fort Bend charities — Abigail’s Place, Brookwood Community, Family Hope, Fort Bend PAWS, Rainbow Room and Texana Center. The donation was through last year’s Give Back, Build Hope campaign.
