With 75-million loyal fans, there’s no doubt NASCAR is an all-American sport.
Americans show their patriotism in many ways. Whether it’s performing a community service, such as blood donation; serving our country through the Armed Forces or enjoying basic freedoms like attending a NASCAR event, Americans do it with pride.
“I’m proud to be an American Red Cross blood donor. I give blood because it’s easy to do and helps support the community,” says Greg Biffle, Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 16 Ford Fusion Driver.
The American Red Cross, Greg Biffle and 3M Racing are proud to offer you one more way to show your patriotism. Log on to redcrossracing.com and learn how you can support the U.S. military by making a donation to Services to Armed Forces (SAF).
The Red Cross SAF links members of the military with their families during a crisis. Twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, the Red Cross can assist in sending emergency messages—the birth of a service member’s child, the death or serious illness of a family member, or when a family faces other emergencies. The Red Cross SAF also helps military members and their families cope with separation; provides access to financial assistance when a crisis arises; offers a variety of health and supportive services; and assists in times of disaster.
Today, Red Cross personnel form a global network throughout 700 U.S. chapters as well as military installations worldwide. While providing service to 1.4 million active duty military personnel and their families, the Red Cross also reaches out to more than 1.2 million members of the National Guard and Reserves living in nearly every community in America.
Locally, you may donate blood on Thursday, May 20, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Lions Club Building located at 540 W. Adams St. in Woodbury.
For your convenience, you may now schedule blood donation appointments online at www.redcrossblood.org. You may also call 1-800-RED CROSS.
Donors may subscribe to Red Cross texting by sending redcross to 42227 or registering online at redcrossblood.org.
