United Blood Services of Las Vegas
Blood drive at the Rampart Casino at the Resort at Summerlin and JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa
Find the hero in you! Volunteer blood donors are needed in Las Vegas year-round. All donors at this blood drive will receive one Rampart Casino Buffet voucher and a casino gift item. Donors will also be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a variety of prizes courtesy of the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa. Additionally, blood donors will also receive two free admissions to the 2014 Motor Trend International Car Show scheduled for Nov. 29 through Dec.1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
As Southern Nevada’s community blood provider, United Blood Services relies on blood donations to make sure blood is available for anyone who needs it. UBS currently has an urgent need for O negative blood. O negative is the universal blood type and the only type that can be transfused to patients with different blood types.
Donors are encouraged to make an appointment and can do so by calling 877-827-4376 or by visiting www.unitedbloodservices.org/LV and enter sponsor code: RAMPART. Donors can now complete their health history questionnaire online on the same day of their donation by visiting www.unitedbloodservices.org/HealthHistory.html. This questionnaire often saves time for donors, as it provides UBS with valuable information that is typically gathered during the in-person interview process at mobile blood drives and donation centers. The questionnaire must be completed on the same day as the blood donation.
UBS is always interested in creating partnerships for new blood drive sponsors in our community. To learn more about organizing a mobile blood drive, please call (702)304-6457.
