Cannery, Eastside Cannery and Rampart Casinos Rank
First, Second and Third in Blood Donations
According to United Blood Services (UBS), blood drives held at the Cannery, Eastside Cannery and Rampart Casinos contributed a combined 2,236 units between December 1, 2010 and November 30, 2011. The amount is 30 percent of the total 7,339 collected by all hotels, resorts and casinos in our community in the past year. Cannery Casino Resorts surpassed donations in the category for the third consecutive year.
“United Blood Services is responsible for providing thousands of units of blood annually to medical facilities in our community,” says Danny Cervantes, Donor Recruitment Director for United Blood Services. “We can only meet that demand with the generous and dedicated support of properties such as the Cannery, Rampart and Eastside Cannery Casinos.”
“As the dedicated blood provider in our community, blood drives are an extremely important tool for UBS to provide an adequate supply to medical facilities at the moment it is needed. Since no one can predict when an emergency will strike, UBS must always have an adequate supply on hand”.
“We appreciate our part in this important initiative and are pleased with the way the local community has responded to the need for donations,” said Xavier Walsh, Chief Operating Officer for CCR.
United Blood Services has been the area’s premier non-profit community blood provider since 1950, and serves patients in 19 hospitals in Southern Nevada, California and Northern Arizona. The United Blood Services network is one of the nation’s oldest and largest non-profit blood service organizations, and is a founding member of America’s Blood Centers and the American Association of Blood Banks.
