Stepping Up Around the World

From hurricanes to wildfires, from biomedical services to military support, the American Red Cross has been serving people facing emergencies for 140 years. H.B. Fuller and its employees around the world have supported the Red Cross in its mission through volunteering, fundraising, and blood donation.

Employees in the Willow Lake location alone have conducted 84 on-site blood drives, collecting more than 2,500 units of blood. Our donations have supported the program that supplies 40% of the nation’s blood.
