LaserShip joins the Workplace Partnership for Life initiative as a commitment to give its employees the opportunity to learn about and make decisions surrounding organ donation.
VIENNA, Va. — Feb. 21, 2018 — LaserShip, an e-commerce parcel carrier servicing the Eastern and Midwest U.S., announced today its participation in the Workplace Partnership for Life, a national initiative bringing together the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the organ donation community with workplaces to help increase awareness about donation. To celebrate the partnership, LaserShip hosted a Let Life Bloom event at its headquarters in Vienna. The event featured a presentation from the Washington Regional Transplant Community (WRTC), one of the 58 federally-designated non-profit organ procurement organizations (OPO) that facilitates organ, eye and tissue donation. The event took place on February 14—National Donor Day.
As a Workplace Partner for Life, LaserShip will provide its employees with opportunities to learn about and make decisions surrounding donation through regular awareness programs and events hosted throughout the year. The Let Life Bloom event was the first event of 2018 aimed at educating LaserShip employees about organ donation.
“We are very excited to help spread awareness about the importance of organ donation through the Workplace Partnership for Life program. We have invested heavily in our services to partner with OPOs around the country and do our part to help save lives,” says Josh Dinneen, Senior Vice President at LaserShip. “We look forward to hosting additional events with WRTC and other OPOs to continue spreading awareness in hopes of getting our employees, their families and friends to register as donors and be part of the solution!”
LaserShip’s Global Critical Delivery unit has been facilitating organ deliveries since 2007, and currently works with six of the nation’s OPOs. Learn more about our Global Critical Delivery services.
