June 17, 2014 (Las Vegas, NV) As part of the Helix Outreach Program, Helix Electric through a joint initiative with the American Red Cross is holding a disaster preparedness blood drive, Friday June 27th, 2014, from 8:00am to 1:00pm at Helix Electric headquarters, located at 3078 East Sunset Road in Las Vegas. With constant natural disasters, turbulent weather and other emergencies, it is predicted that demands for blood will increase putting a stress on the blood supply.
Helix Electric of Nevada together with its employees and partners are taking action to help combat a blood shortage to make certain the American Red Cross is ready to immediately respond should a disaster strike.
“Each and every single life is valuable. Proper preparation and planning is key for disaster and emergency relief to ensure no life is lost due to lack of blood availability or donor match,” said Victor Fuchs, President of Helix Electric of Nevada. “We are proud to work with the American Red Cross to ensure individuals, especially those with unique vulnerabilities and special attention receive proper care during emergencies.”
The general public is welcome and we would like to encourage everyone to stop by and give the gift of life and show support for our community. Please bring your photo ID.
