"This is an incredible opportunity for the Red Cross to connect with NASCAR fans, many of whom are already dedicated blood donors," said Greg Ballish, senior vice president, Biomedical Services. "When the No.16 Red Cross Ford goes around the track this year, we hope people will not only be motivated to sign up to give blood but also take a moment to learn how to get prepared for disasters and emergencies."

Greg Biffle will drive the Red Cross Ford at Talladega Superspeedway on April 27 and at Phoenix International Raceway on November 9. He will also appear in television and radio public service announcements to support the mission of the Red Cross.

"I'm honored to help support an organization that touches millions of lives every year in communities nationwide," said Biffle, driver of the No. 16 Roush Ford. "Besides collecting blood and helping people recover from disasters, they give incredible support to our military personnel and their families. I want to help get the message out to race fans that the Red Cross needs our help, now. Together, let's help those who help us."

3M has a long history of supporting the Red Cross through in-kind contributions of disaster relief supplies. Last year, 3M provided the Twin Cities Area Chapter of the Red Cross with financial contributions, and 3M employees gave over 2,000 units of blood.

"We're pleased to be able to provide the Red Cross with this opportunity to further advance the important work that they do," said Bob MacDonald, 3M senior vice president of marketing. "I know that Greg Biffle will be a terrific representative for the Red Cross, just as he is for 3M."

About the American Red Cross:

The American Red Cross helps people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. Last year, almost a million volunteers and 35,000 employees helped victims of almost 75,000 disasters; taught lifesaving skills to millions; and helped U.S. service members separated from their families stay connected. Almost 4 million people gave blood through the Red Cross, the largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. The American Red Cross is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian services and programs. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it relies on donations of time, money, and blood to do its work.
