BioLife plasma centers across the country are closed today for their National Service Day. The Lima employees are spending their day at Fasset Farm. 

The volunteers are spending their day tree trimming, weed whacking, and helping build two run in shelters for the horses. Michele Sabol, the Executive Director of the Equestrian Therapy Program says that the volunteer work will make it easier for the farm to better benefit the community. 

"We're just so pleased that they choose us because we always have so much to do around this farm. We have 50 acres and 17 horses and it's a lot to keep up so they've done so many various projects in the past and we can't appreciate them enough," says Sabol.

Plasma Center Manager Chris Plescher says BioLife couldn't fulfill their purpose without the community, which is why he finds it so important to be involved.  

"We have the opportunity to collect plasma which then is made into life-saving medications for a lot of individuals with rare diseases so really on a regular basis at BioLife we have the opportunity to give back to individuals across the world but this is more of an opportunity to give back to individuals in our local community," says Plescher. 

Every BioLife service day project is unique and different. However, the Lima location has returned to Fasset Farm for the past few years.
