KTVN's 7th Annual 'Give 2 Live' Blood Drive a Success
Our area blood bank is replenishing its stock of life-saving blood -- thanks to you, our viewers.
We held our 7th Annual 'Give 2 Live' Blood Drive inside the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa on Monday.
We collected more than 200 units of blood.
Everyone had a different reason for donating their time – and blood today.
Here are just a few that we heard.
"Just to save over lives. It's important. You feel good after this,” said Josie Timmermans.
Bill Zelinski added, "It's easy for me. I think it's good karma."
And Marty Pleak told us, "Be humanitarian. Do good in life."
If you missed today's event and still want to donate, call United Blood Services at 775-329-6454 to set up an appointment. You can also fill out the health history questionnaire online ahead of time. Just go to https://edhq.unitedbloodservices.org/ ;
On behalf of all the recipients and their families thank you to all our donors and we'll see you next year!
