WHAT:Fashion Show Las Vegas will team up with the American Red Cross to host additional blood drives during the month of September. Guests able to donate blood are welcome to visit the property’s pop-up donor location on the first floor near Macy’s Men’s on September 9; 15; 21 – 22 and 26, 2020 by appointment.
The Red Cross is urging healthy donors to make an appointment to give blood to support children fighting cancer, patients with sickle cell disease, and others facing serious illnesses. More blood donors are needed to ensure hospitals have the blood necessary to help save lives.
According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 15,000 children and adolescents in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year. Childhood cancer patients may need blood products on a regular basis during chemotherapy, surgery or treatment for complications.
The Red Cross is now testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. The test may indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to this coronavirus, regardless of whether they developed symptoms. Donors who help support the need by giving at this drive will be able to view their results 7-10 days after donation through the Red Cross Blood Donor App or the donor portal at RedCrossBlood.org.
During September, those who come to give blood at an American Red Cross blood drive or donation center will receive a free haircut coupon courtesy of Sport Clips Haircuts at participating Sports Clips locations. Those who donate from Sept. 4-8 will also receive a pair of Red Cross branded socks, while supplies last.
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff – have been implemented to protect the health of all those in attendance.
Donation appointments can be made by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device and use sponsor code FashionShowRetail.
Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public guidance.
