We Need Your Help To Make 100,000 Disaster Relief Kits

Sands_FlyerLettersize__print_Final

The American Red Cross has partnered with Clean the World and Sands Cares  to build 100,000 disaster relief hygiene kits and we need your help to hit our target.  The goal of the One Project is to show that every single person can make a positive impact on the life of another. Sometimes it is the creature comforts and necessities found in the hygiene kits that will give someone the strength to pull themselves up after a disaster.

Knowing that these kits were all made by hand lets them know there are people out there who care.  We would love to have you join us on September 20th or 21st at The Venetian hotel as we work together to create kits that will be used not only locally but will also be distributed across the country to people in need. Lets show the nation just how much Las Vegas cares! Come fill bags with soap, shampoo and lotion or connect your heart to theirs and spend the day writing inspirational cards. You never know when disaster will strike and it is the little things that can make the biggest difference. All it takes is two hours of your time,  chick here to register for your shift today!

Check out the video for more information.

We are in the midst of the 100 most deadly days of summer but at the same time we also have 100 days of hope! Hope that our community will respond to our call for much needed blood donations.

We have had 80,000 fewer blood donations since May than expected!

If you are looking for a way to help your community but don’t have a lot of time to give then joining us for our blood drive on August 20, 2014 from 3:00pm -7:00pm is the perfect way for you to give back.

Bring a friend! If every donor now through the end of summer brought a friend to donate, we could prevent an emergency situation.

Spaces are limited so for more information and to schedule your appointment please call (702) 369-3149 today!

You can also reserve your appointment time by logging on to redcrossblood.org and enter the Sponsor Code: So NV Chapter.
