Red Cross Community Blood Drive at Bartwood

Did you know that one pint of donated blood can save three lives?  Or that a single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood?  Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.  Although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each.

That’s why Bartwood Construction wanted to support its community and support the live-saving work of the American Red Cross by recently hosting a community blood drive at its Fountain Valley facility.  Eighteen Bartwood employees and community members rolled up their sleeves and took part in one of the easiest (and most meaningful) ways to help save lives.

“Woman Business Enterprise” Certification


In December 2014, Bartwood proudly announced that it has been certified as a business owned and controlled by a woman by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC), the first national certifier of Women Business Enterprises.

More than 700 public and private sector individuals participated in establishing the Standards and Procedures of this rigid certification review.  “Through this certification, NWBOC seeks to provide more corporations with the opportunity to better their procurement practices and to allow women suppliers the opportunity to compete for corporate and government contracts”, says Janet Harris-Lange, president of NWBOC.

“Certification provides a marketing opportunity for women business enterprises to participate in outreach programs,” says Lori Young, Bartwood’s president and owner.  “Certification that a business is owned by a woman is important if you wish to participate in programs which require partnering with woman-owned businesses.  Having the Woman Business Enterprise certification is the only way decision makers can be sure that a business representing itself as woman-owned is in fact woman-owned,” she added.
