L.A.-based Herbalife International has been a long-standing supporter of the American Red Cross since 1995 – hosting blood drives at various locations across the country, supporting L.A. Region special events and supporting Red Cross disaster responses domestically and internationally.
Since 2006, Herbalife has hosted 25 blood drives at various locations across the country, which resulted in the collection of over 1,500 units of blood. In 2015, Herbalife donated 280,000 protein bars to the national Red Cross Blood Services for distribution to blood donors at national donation centers.
“Herbalife’s commitment to do good in our communities exemplifies the Red Cross mission to prepare and stand ready,” said Red Cross Los Angeles Region CEO Jarrett Barrios. “We are proud that Herbalife is a Red Cross partner here in Los Angeles and around the nation, helping to raise needed funds, preparing communities and participating in valuable blood drives.”
On April 21, 2016, Herbalife was a supporter and community sponsor of the American Red Cross National Giving Day, which helped raise more than $2.5 million to support Red Cross services. In addition, Herbalife has provided generous support to Los Angeles Region’s Heroes Luncheon, Red Tie event, and most recently the Celebrity Golf Classic on April 25, where it was recognized as a proud partner of the Red Cross. A senior executive from Herbalife has been a member of the L.A. Region Board of Directors since 2010.
"Since 1980, we have provided communities from around the world access to quality nutrition products and education, and a healthy active lifestyle. We are honored to partner with the American Red Cross and look forward to working with them in the future,” said Alan Hoffman, Executive Vice President, Global Corporate Affairs, Herbalife.
