RENO — Donations at United Blood Services donations normally drop over the holidays because of busy schedules and travel plans, but the demand does not.
To make sure there’s a dependable blood supply locally, United Blood Services is asking all eligible blood donors to consider donating at their Reno, Sparks or Carson City community donation center this month.
United Blood Services provides a free cholesterol screening with each donation. Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height and weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian. To make an appointment, visit www.bloodhero.com or call 324-6454.
