Question: My hospital works with the Red Cross and holds quarterly blood drives at our facility. We have small direct costs in food, some staff time at registration, canteen, etc. The main thing is that most of our employees come down to give blood while on the clock. Could this be considered community benefit?

Recommendation: Yes, the hospital is contributing the value of the employees' time.
