LVMS hosts blood drive March 25
Las Vegas Motor Speedway will host a Red Cross blood drive beginning on Friday, March 25. The blood drive will run from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and be held in the LOCALiQ Digital Center in the speedway’s infield.
Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, and right now, the Red Cross is working around the clock to provide blood products to hospitals. Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. As a result of the blood shortage, some hospitals are being forced to slow the pace of elective surgeries until the blood supply stabilizes.
