Mike Cendejas Organizes Office Blood Drive

Not only are RE/MAX agents the most experienced and most productive agents—they also have the biggest hearts.

Mike Cendejas joined RE/MAX Gold in the Folsom office this past September and has wasted no time in finding ways to serve his community.

When thinking of ways to volunteer his time, Mike came up with the idea to organize a blood drive for the Folsom office. Mike took part in organizing a blood drive in the past, so the idea came naturally. “Someone invited me to give blood about 3-4 years ago, so I did,” said Mike. “After that, I felt that I could organize a blood drive, as well, in order to give back in my community.”

He reached out to the American Red Cross and picked a date for a mobile unit to park at the office and take donations. The Red Cross provided Mike with an online sign-up and marketing materials to help spread the word.

On the morning of January 8th, the mobile unit arrived at the office and parked for the day, giving the office’s agents and staff a chance to donate. After a preliminary evaluation, 13 people were able to donate blood. The Red Cross reached out to Mike the next day to share the news that those 13 donations could potentially save up to 39 lives—talk about a productive day!

Because the blood drive was such a success and has the potential to help so many people, Mike says he would like to hold a blood drive on an annual basis.
