The No. 16 Ford Fusion and Greg Biffle is supporting the American Red Cross in its emergency call for blood and platelet donors with special graphics on the car this weekend at Kentucky Speedway. The car will sport the #MyTownGives hashtag and a reminder to “give blood” on the quarter panel as part of the paint scheme during this weekend’s Quaker State 400.
Greg Biffle, who is currently second in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Standings eleven points behind his teammate Matt Kenseth, said “I give blood because I’m not a firefighter or an EMT, but I can help save a life – one hour of my time may save a life, I encourage everyone who is able to give blood to visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS and find a blood donation location.” Greg Biffle is a member of the Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet.
The American Red Cross is celebrating the fifth year of its Red Cross Racing partnership with 3M and Roush Fenway Racing. A donation from regular 16 car sponsor 3M and support by Greg Biffle has made this special #MyTownGives paint scheme possible.
The American Red Cross is calling to action due to an emergency need for blood and platelet donors of all types. Specific needs are O positive, O negative, A negative and B negative. Eligible whole blood donors can give blood once every 56 days at Red Cross blood drives and blood donation centers throughout the country.
Small towns are big supporters of the blood supply, with almost 38 percent of Red Cross blood drives being held in small towns across the United States. Consider helping The American Red Cross by donating blood in your locality.
