As part of Perfection’s 65th year celebration, we are hosting a company-wide blood drive. We will have Hoxworth trucks here in our Cincinnati office on August 11th from 9am – 5pm. Our goal is to collect 65 pints of blood company-wide.
This event is open to all associates, family members, vendors, customers, etc. Free food, door prizes and raffles will be offered throughout the day! Please help us spread the word and join us on August 11th to donate blood and help us reach our goal!
