blood drive2“The summer months are the most difficult to get donors to donate the much needed blood for our hospital patients. Travelling, vacations, and the heat, deters many donors,” according to Ann Trilby, United Blood Services representative. “The supply is down, but, the demand is up, particularly in July and August” , she added.

To encourage more donors, United Blood Services is offering an extra incentive to all blood donors at the smaller blood drives for the month of July. All donors will receive a voucher for one FREE midday sightseeing cruise at Lake Mead Cruises. This voucher is good through September 2015.
