Blood Drive Wednesday at Atlantis Casino

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of volunteers honored Sept. 11 victims Wednesday with good deeds performed around the globe.
 
The anniversary of the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people was designated a National Day of Service and Remembrance in 2009.

September 11th has also turned into one of the busiest days for United Blood Services in Reno.

Last year, they saw twice the amount of donors they typically see in one day - and this year they say they collected 55 units of blood - enough to save 165 lives.

If you missed today's drive, they're accepting donations all year round. Just go to http://www.unitedbloodservices.org for more information.
