United Blood Services and Harley Davidson joined forces throughout the Four Corners area to save lives.
Several dealers sponsored blood drives and asked their local community members to donate life-saving blood. Donors were encouraged to donate at blood drives in their community so that local hospital patients can receive the life-saving blood transfusions they require.
We collected over 700 life saving products — not bad, New Mexico and Colorado.
A winner was selected to win a 2017 Harley Davidson on June 7. Tyler Long was among 34 other finalists.
All blood types are needed. Join us to save lives throughout the summer months. Let’s break a blood donation record and save lives.
Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 23 and younger, and donors who are 16 and 17 years old must have a signed permission form from a parent or legal guardian.
To schedule an appointment or have your questions answered, please call (505) 246-1457 or go to www.bloodhero.com and select a blood drive near you.
