United Blood Services to host blood drive at Texas Station

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Aug 6, 2014

A blood drive is being held at Texas Station Gambling Hall & Hotel this week.

It's scheduled for Aug. 8 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Dallas Room.

All donors at this blood drive will receive one free voucher to the Feast Buffet and two free admissions to see the Tina Turner and Stevie Wonder tribute concert on Aug. 30.

All donors in August will also receive a voucher for two free admissions to see Gordie Brown at the Golden Nugget and one voucher for buy-one-get-one-free all-day ride passes to the Adventuredome at Circus Circus.

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 a need for all blood types, especially O negative. O negative is the universal blood type and the only type that can be transfused to patients with different blood types.

Donors are encouraged by calling 877-827-4376.
