BioLife donates Thanksgiving dinner to family

As part of CAPS's annual Adopt-A-Family Christmas program, families and employees at businesses band together to donate gifts to help local families in stress and crisis have a happier Christmas season.

The employees at BioLife Plasma Services on Elkhart's Emerson Drive, however, decided to go a step further for their family: They also made Thanksgiving dinner and donated some kitchen items and clothes.

Due to the generosity of BioLife employees, a family in the CAPS Parent Aide program will have a healthy meal to share on Thanksgiving as well as some much-needed household items to reduce their stress during this holiday season.

“We’re excited to be a part of CAPS’ Adopt-A-Family program,” said Gerry Hertzler, BioLife marketing representative. “Our company encourages centers to become involved with local communities, and this program will help an Elkhart County family put food on the table and enjoy the holiday season.”

BioLife Plasma Services is an industry leader in the collection of high quality plasma that is processed into life-saving plasma-based therapies.

We at CAPS are so grateful to BioLife and their employees for their compassion and enthusiasm for helping make life better for a local family.
