EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — During this time of crisis, you can help your community and win Rhino tickets in exchange.
The El Paso Rhinos have partnered with Vitalant, and the El Paso Sports Commission to host a blood drive at the El Paso County Coliseum.
The need for blood donations continue to rise as COVID-19 cases increase in the El Paso area.
According to a release, blood banks in El Paso are seeking plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients, as it may help save the lives of others who have more severe cases.
