Please get the word out to everyone who wants a way to honor veterans and save lives at the same time!

On Veterans Day, November 11th, we will roll up our sleeves and help save lives at the Charlotte Motor Speedway!  The American Red Cross and Speedway are partnering to hold our first annual Veterans Day Blood Drive.  Those of us who are veterans or have veterans or active military in our families can make a big difference by donating blood on Veterans Day!  To sign up, go to http://redcrossblood.org and enter the zip code 28027 and the date 11/11.

Each pint of blood collected can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more.  What a great way to honor our veterans and make an impact on people in our community and across the country.  We are excited about this new Veterans Day initiative and are eager to make the first year a great success!

Susan McEntire of the Speedway and I are leading this drive.  Let’s show our community and the patients in need of blood just how much we can do.  Although several people have already signed up for the drive, there are plenty of appointments still available.  So please come out and donate!

If you would like to volunteer at the drive, please contact me directly.

It’s not every day that we can do something that has a lifesaving impact.  Let’s  blow this out of the water!  I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
