Las Vegas Realtors to Host Blood Drive in August

LAS VEGAS — The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS (GLVAR) in conjunction with United Blood Services, is hosting a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 20, at the GLVAR office located at 1750 E. Sahara Avenue, in classroom B. Appointments are suggested and can be made by calling 702-784-5000.

The drive is being held to help ease the shortage of blood in Southern Nevada.
According to United Blood Services, more than 400 pints of blood are needed to get through the summer, especially from people with Type O negative blood.

As a thank you gift, donors will receive a voucher from Cold Stone Creamery for a free “love it” size creation.

GLVAR was founded in 1947 and provides more than 17,000 local members with education, training and political representation. GLVAR, the local representative of the National Association of REALTORS, is the largest professional organization in Southern Nevada. Each GLVAR member
receives the highest level of professional training and must abide by a strict code of ethics.

United Blood Services exists to make a difference in people’s lives by bringing together the best people, inspiring individuals to donate blood, producing a safe and ample blood supply, advancing research, and embracing continuous quality improvement.

This event is very timely, given that blood supplies in Southern Nevada are lower than normal this time of year. Donations are critical or the community will face shortages later this summer that could place elective surgeries on hold. Kudos to the GLVAR for helping out in the community it serves.
