For more than 40 years, Delgado Travel Agency has been offering travel to customers by providing comprehensive packages that take flights, hotels, rental cars, and money transfers into account. Delgado Travel Agency also supports a number of charities, including the Red Cross. One of the Red Cross’ most important initiatives is its blood drives, which are held throughout the United States.

The Red Cross states that somebody in the United States will need blood every two seconds, which creates a total of 36,000 units of red blood cells required daily in the country. A car accident victim may require as many as 100 pints of blood to be nursed back to health.

To confront this issue, the Red Cross offers people and other organizations the opportunity to host blood drives. All they need to do is find a suitable location, publicize the drive, and schedule appointments. The Red Cross handles the rest.

You can sign up to host a blood drive or find out about any that are near you by visiting redcrossblood.org.

During the course of more than 40 years of offering travel and money services to customers, Delgado Travel Agency has lent its support to a number of charitable initiatives. Among many other organizations, Delgado Travel Agency has contributed extensively to the Wounded Warrior Project. The Warriors to Work program is one of the most important initiatives created by the charity.

This program focuses on helping wounded veterans develop the skills they need to re-enter the workplace. Among its many services, it can help them develop their résumés, set realistic and attainable goals, prepare for job interviews, and connect with employers that may be able to offer opportunities.

The program also focuses on educating potential employers by making them aware of viable candidates while also educating them about combat-related injuries. The program also assists with the onboarding processes put in place by employers and aims to form long-lasting relationships with those who are committed to helping veterans find work.
