SUBURBAN PROPANE TO SUPPORT AMERICAN RED CROSS LAPS FOR LIFE BLOOD DRIVE EVENT AT CHARLOTTE MOTORSPEEDWAY AND OFFER A SUMMER COOKOUT AND $10 VISA GIFT CARD TO PARTICIPANTS TO ENCOURAGE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
During the Annual Summer Awareness Campaign, the Suburban Propane-Supported Events Help Ensure Blood is Available All Season Long
WHAT: Blood and platelet donations often decline during the summer months, making it difficult for the American Red Cross to meet hospital patient needs. That’s why Suburban Propane is partnering with the Red Cross as the official sponsor of its annual national summer awareness campaign. In order to increase donations, Suburban Propane will support the American Red Cross Laps for Life Blood Drive Event at Charlotte Motor speedway by providing an on-site cookout and $10 Visa gift card to all who come out to give at the drive.
This is just one of 37 Suburban Propane-supported blood drives across the country throughout the summer long campaign.
As the official sponsor of the summer campaign, from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, Suburban Propane employees will also volunteer at blood drives as part of one of the largest nationwide corporate volunteer efforts in support of Red Cross Blood Services.

WHO: The event will include representatives from Suburban Propane and the American Red Cross, as well as blood and platelet donors from the area.
WHEN: September 9th,
10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
WHERE: Charlotte Motor Speedway
5555 Concord Pkwy S
Concord NC 28027
WHY: The Red Cross relies on volunteer donors for the 14,000 blood donations needed every day to support patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide. However, during the summer months, about two fewer donors schedule an appointment to give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what patients need.
