Firm to support and promote the need for donations to the Rhode Island Blood Center.

Providence, RI (June 3, 2016)— StrategicPoint Investment Advisors is partnering with the Rhode Island Blood Center (RIBC) to sponsor a week-long blood drive at all six RIBC locations throughout Rhode Island.

New recommendations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will soon necessitate additional testing to ensure the safety of the blood supply. Consequently, this testing impacts RIBC’s ability to continue to hold current and new blood drives in a cost-effective way.

For the past three years, StrategicPoint has been pleased to host blood drives at our Providence office for both our staff and our clients. Due to recent changes at the Blood Center, we are no longer able to have these drives at our Providence office, but will instead sponsor a week-long drive at all six Blood Center locations throughout the state. This will provide our donors with the flexibility of time and location to make their donation where it is most convenient for them while keeping our commitment to the RIBC in their efforts to increase donations throughout Rhode Island.” said Managing Director and CIO Betsey A. Purinton, CFP®.

Donors can schedule an appointment at any of the 6 donor centers throughout Rhode Island (Middletown, Narragansett, Providence, Warwick, Westerly and Woonsocket) by calling 401-453-8383 or visiting www.ribc.org
