Blood Drive At Carson Valley Medical Center July 6

Carson Valley Medical Center’s lab department will host a blood drive Friday, July 6 from 9 a.m. to noon in conjunction with United Blood Services.

Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.

There is a constant need for regular blood supply because blood can be stored for only a limited time before use. Regular blood donations are needed to ensure that safe blood will be available whenever and wherever it is needed.

The Bloodmobile will be on CVMC’s main campus, 1107 Highway 395 N in Gardnerville, July 6 from 9 a.m. to noon. Free cholesterol testing is done with every donation. Donors will also be entered to win a Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom from Chester’s Reno Harley-Davidson.

To make an appointment, call 775-782-1536 or visit www.BloodHero.com  and use the sponsor code “CVMC.”
