Small Companies Can Give in a Big Way

Waltham, MA, September 05, 2008 --( During these times of economic uncertainty, one local company is making a difference. DataStar, Inc. of Waltham, MA is sponsoring a blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross’ Give Blood campaign.

According to DataStar’s President, Ellie Smerlas, “It is one of our annual events and in a small but powerful way it allows the company and, more importantly our associates, a way to help people and give back to the community.”

“There are many organizations like this that need assistance. We chose the American Red Cross as one where we feel our contribution provides something more important than just money,” continued Smerlas. “It allows us to help, make a contribution and perhaps save a life. There are many organizations that small businesses can help that do not always require a monetary commitment, and this is one our company feels strongly about.”
