United Blood Services Seeks Donations for Holiday Season

Posted: Updated:

United Blood Services is asking you to donate blood to help them ensure an adequate blood supply throughout this holiday season.

"How about celebrating Thanksgiving by donating blood?" suggested Steve Thomas who is the Donor Recruitment Director of United Blood Service. "What better way to give thanks than by giving the gift of life to someone else?  Giving blood around Thanksgiving time can be a great tradition and a gift that someone will surely be thankful for!" Thomas added.

United Blood Services of Reno is the sole blood products supplier to 20 hospitals in northern Nevada and they need approximately 125 blood donations every day to meet the demand for their three principal blood products that are red blood cells, platelets and plasma.
 
"We hope everyone will consider becoming a blood donor if they are not now coming in to donate," says Thomas. "Blood donations are essential for our community's hospital patients and for other critically ill people in our community," stated Thomas.

United Blood Services is located at 1125 Terminal Way. Their number is 775-324-6454. You can also go to www.UnitedBloodServices.org for more information.
