LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Nevada Highway Patrol is teaming up with Vitalant for a memorial blood drive in honor of Trooper Micah May on Wednesday, Aug. 11.
Trooper May was laid to rest on Friday after being hit while trying to stop a carjacking suspect on the I-15 last month.
Those close to the father, husband, brother and son say he dedicated his life to selfless service. The blood drive, which will help save lives, is being held in honor of May’s courage and integrity.
Vitalant spokeswoman Brittany Estrella says people who are in chemotherapy and those who need blood transfusions from car crashes are some of the individuals in dire need of donations.
If you’d like to donate, please make an appointment here, using code NHP. There will also be a few walk-in spots available.
The drive will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in NHP training room 105, located at 4615 West Sunset.
Vitalant says there is currently an urgent need for blood, with an emphasis on types O-positive and O-negative.
All donors must wear a face mask, regardless of vaccination status.
