The Reno Aces are teaming up with the United Blood Services for the Save Lives blood drives in Northern Nevada.

At each of the blood drives, Aces fans will be able to receive Aces merchandise including T-shirts, hats and water bottles. There will be photo opportunities with the Aces mascot, Archie or the Street Team.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with United Blood Services this summer,” said Communications Manager Jackson Gaskins. “My life was saved because of blood donors and through these drives, the Aces and United Blood Services have the opportunity to save many more in our Northern Nevada Community.”

“The summer is a very challenging time to collect blood due to many reasons so we are thankful for the tremendous support from the Reno Aces to help boost our community’s blood supply together,” said Scott Edward, Donor Marketing and Communications Director for United Blood Services. “Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood, so these blood drives are a big part of our efforts to meet patient needs.”
