High Ridge Park Corporate Center in Stamford announced the 2011 Fairfield County Property Managers and Landlords Blood Drive Challenge has raised 388 productive pints of blood for the American Red Cross. Greenwich Town Hall won the Challenge by achieving the highest level of participation relative to its size for the second consecutive year.

Established by High Ridge Park Corporate Center in Stamford, the Challenge seeks to satisfy the demand for blood in Connecticut. The donations collected at this year’s blood drive will help to save up to 1,164 Connecticut hospital patients - a new record for the Challenge.

According to the American Red Cross, the number of blood donations in Connecticut was the lowest they have seen in more than a decade this past summer. The American Red Cross is appealing to people with all blood types to donate. Unfortunately, Connecticut is not currently self-sufficient and, with just one donation, up to three lives can be saved. The Challenge aims to help serve the basic needs of Connecticut hospital patients.

“Since 2006, the Challenge has raised 1,812 pints of blood and, with each year, continues to grow and serve the community,” said Joan Bennett, District Manager/Donor Services, American Red Cross. “We are fortunate to have High Ridge Park’s support with this initiative and are thankful for their involvement with American Red Cross.”

In recognition of their generous donations, all participants received certificates from the American Red Cross while Greenwich Town Hall was presented a plaque for raising the most productive pints of blood among participants.

“The donation results demonstrate the impact that our government representatives, landlords and property managers can have in helping our local communities,” said Jodi Gutierrez, VP of Property Management for George Comfort & Sons and On-Site Property Manager of High Ridge Park Corporate Center. “We are very pleased with this year’s results and want to thank the participants, many of whom have been supporting this initiative from its inception.”

Participants in the 2011 Challenge included: George Comfort & Sons and RREEF; Greenwich Town Hall; RFR Realty; BLT; Ashforth; SL Green, Marcus Partners; Carter USA; Malkin Properties; CBRE; and Norwalk Town Hall.
