CenterPoint Cares. Give Blood. Share Life.

Almost 100 CenterPoint employees rolled up their sleeves last week to give blood and share life. Mericle, in partnership with CTDI, the Geisinger Blood Center, and other members of the CenterPoint community, organized the CenterPoint Cares. “Give Blood. Share Life.” blood drive last Thursday. The blood collected during the drive will be processed at Geisinger’s CenterPoint facility and will benefit local patients treated within the Geisinger Health System. Comcast Business partnered with CTDI and Geisinger Blood Services to provide food and beverages for donors. Other CenterPoint tenants contributed by donating gifts that were raffled and awarded to those who donated blood during Thursday’s event.

From collecting toys for Toys for Tots, to donating food to the Weinberg Northeast Regional Food Bank, to giving badly needed blood, our CenterPoint tenants strive every day to make our community a better place.

Book Storage

Mericle is very proud to be able to donate storage space in CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park East to help libraries in Luzerne and Lackawanna counties. When longtime Luzerne County employer Penguin Group USA decided to close its warehouse, it graciously decided to donate its large inventory of books to area libraries, provided the libraries could accept delivery quickly. Mericle stepped in and took delivery of the books at no cost to the libraries. Now, the libraries will be able to greatly enhance their collections and sell books at annual tent sales to raise money for their day to day operations.
