“Our hospital patients need your help,” said Steve Thomas, Donor Recruitment Director for United Blood Services of Reno. “Please give us a call at 800-696-4484 to make your appointment to donate or you can also schedule your appointment online at www.BloodHero.com. Additionally, all blood donors in September will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a $500 gift card that will help with the added back to school expenses.”
Hospital patients in northern Nevada continue to need blood every day and there are no vacations for them.
“We hope everyone will consider becoming a blood donor if they are not now coming in to donate,” Thomas said. “Blood donations are essential for our community’s hospital patients and other critically ill people in our community who rely on your blood donations to ensure we have the necessary blood products available when required.”
