KALAMAZOO, Mich. (July 2, 2014) — The American Red Cross is teaming up with branches of the United States military to honor veterans, and help save lives in the process.

They are hosting a blood drive on Wednesday in Kalamazoo that they’ve dubbed ‘Honoring Those Who Serve’ that will include some special events and gifts for donors.

The drive is happening from 11:00 a.m. – 4:45 p.m. at the Radisson Plaza Hotel and Suites in Kalamazoo.  There will be a special flag-raising ceremony at noon, and each branch of the military will be on site offering information and complimentary gifts to donors.

Everyone who comes out to donate can also enter for a chance to win two tickets to the August NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
