Donate Blood, Win a Laptop?!
Regular blood donors know the great all-over feeling they get from helping out a vital cause, but at the end of the month, there will be an extra incentive.
Second year nursing students at Western Nevada College are hosting a blood drive on Saturday, March 28, in Carson City, Gardnerville and Dayton, and each donor gets a raffle ticket for a chance to win a laptop computer donated by Harley Davidson Financial Services.
There will be other donated prizes as well, including an Ogio gear bag donated by Michael's Cycle Works, a Sonicare toothbrush donated by Dayton Valley Dental, and two haircuts values at $35 donated by Liaison Salon and Day Spa in Carson City.
Nursing student Ciera Staggs said the drive will be held simultaneously, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Carson City Wal-Mart near College Parkway, the Gardnerville East Fork Fire Station #7 in the Gardnerville Ranchos, and Smith's Grocery in Dayton.
Staggs said she hopes the drive will result in 120 or more blood donations for northern Nevada. Those with questions or who would like to set an appointment to donate should call United Blood Services at 315-7287, or go online to bloodhero.com and use WNC as the sponsor code.
