"A lot of folks think one donation is for one life, but it's up to three lives that you can save with one blood donation. So about 400 pints over the course of two days we can help over a thousand people," said Vitalant spokesperson Alexander Sigua.

The event, which is part of the annual All Reno Radio Blood Drive, continues Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at the Atlantis Resort Casino from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary to donate.

Most local radio stations help promote the event each year, with blood donations dropping off because of the holidays and winter driving conditions.
