HTC Employees Save Lives with the American Red Cross
HTC is committed to supporting its community. That’s why the company is so pleased to partner with the American Red Cross to host blood drives every quarter where employees are encouraged to donate in hopes of providing life-saving blood to our community.
On Wednesday, Aug. 24, HTC employees generously gave 27 units, potentially saving as many as 81 lives because each unit has the power to save three lives.
“HTC has a long history of community involvement. Employees regularly band together for a cause and we support their efforts and are so grateful for their donations,” said Lisa Martin, Marketing Coordinator. “Our mission to serve the communities in which we live and work is a cornerstone of our Cooperative’s heritage and culture. Our core value of community commitment carries on through our employees’ donations to the communities that have made our success possible.”
Since 1999, HTC employees have donated over 2,632 units of blood, potentially saving as many as 8,000 lives over the past 18 years. For more information about HTC community outreach programs, visit www.htcinc.net.

The memory of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and the lives lost must never be forgotten lest they be repeated. Post members joined a crowd of flag-wavers including American Legion and Lions Club members that swelled to a to a total of 50 atop the Rt. 130 overpass of Route 17 in Shallotte to remember and to cheer the convoy of firetrucks that left one solemn service in North Myrtle Beach, SC and made its way to another in Bolivia, NC.
