United Blood Services seeking blood donations

United Blood Services of Reno seeks blood donations in its Donor Appreciation Month promotion, which enters the names of every blood donor in March in a drawing to win a home entertainment package.

United Blood Services’ Hero in Me donor loyalty program is a way for donors to be recognized for their past donations with points that can be turned in for prizes like movie tickets and T-shirts. Blood donors in March also receive an additional 500 Hero in Me bonus points and a free cholesterol test.

United Blood Services of Reno is the sole blood products supplier to 20 hospitals in Northern Nevada. It needs approximately 125 blood donations every day to meet the increasing demand for their three principal blood products — red blood cells, platelets and plasma.

To make an appointment, go to www.BloodHero.com, or call 1-800-696-4484. Walk-in appointments are also accepted.
