RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Reno community can start the New Year right by giving blood at the 32nd All Reno Radio Blood Drive with United Blood Services at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa (Paradise Rooms) Thursday, January 4 and Friday, January 5 from 10:00am – 7:00pm.
Spanning more than three decades and counting, this Reno tradition brings competing Reno radio groups together in the spirit of saving lives, including Cumulus Reno, The Evans Broadcast Company, Inc., Radio Lazer, Lotus Radio Corporation and Reno Media Group.
Each participant will receive a Port of Subs coupon for a free small sub and medium drink, Hero Rewards redeemable online for great items at bloodhero.com, free Atlantis gelato, automatic entry to win a $500 Southwest gift card, and a chance to win prizes from one of 32 local businesses. No appointments are necessary, and walk-ins are welcome.
Recent tragedies like the Las Vegas shooting prove it is the blood already on the shelves that saves lives. Our community's blood supply is only made possible through the generosity of volunteer blood donors. This year's goal is to collect at least 450 lifesaving pints of blood during the two-drive blood drive.
Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 or 17 must have signed permission from a parent or guardian.
