At Astellas, we want to help ensure that every community has the resources it needs to live smart, which means being ready to face any challenge. We want to protect our loved ones against uncertainty, and preparation can help.
Each year, Astellas employees provide support for the American Red Cross through a matching gift program funded by Astellas Pharma U.S., Inc. Astellas and its employees have donated more than $425,000 to the American Red Cross since the matching gift program launched in 2009.
Astellas also provided the American Red Cross with a first-of-its-kind energy efficient emergency response vehicle, a high-tech truck that enables the organization to quickly provide food and supplies to people affected by disasters.
Additionally, a recent blood drive at the Astellas U.S. headquarters in Northbrook, Illinois, resulted in 48 pints of blood collected, which can help the American Red Cross save up to 144 lives.
