Celebrate Red Cross Month by Donating Blood at a Local Blood Drive

President Barack Obama has declared the month of March as “Red Cross Month.”  In celebration of this proclamation, the Red Cross is asking southern Nevadans to give the gift of blood.  Nine of thirteen southern Nevada hospitals get their blood supply from Red Cross blood donors.

Giving blood is a simple and easy procedure and a single unit of blood donated can save up to 3 lives. The whole process can take under 45 minutes and the Red Cross works hard to make sure there are enough locations through Las Vegas to make it convenient for donors.

People that are ineligible to donate blood can help by organizing a blood drive, volunteering to assist with Red Cross activities, or creating a SleevesUp virtual blood drive online at redcrossblood.org/SleevesUp and asking others to make a lifesaving donation.  To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).  The need is constant.

Following is a list of Red Cross Blood Drives in southern Nevada in March:
