SouthwestUSA Bank to host blood drive June 2

Donors to receive two tickets to Las Vegas 51s game

LAS VEGAS – Summer is traditionally a difficult time for United Blood Services to attract donors to blood drives due to busy schedules and planned vacations while the kids are out of school. However, as the number of donors decreases, the need for blood during the summer months tends to increase.

To help United Blood Services, SouthwestUSA Bank  – located at 4043 S. Eastern Ave. on the corner of Flamingo Rd. – will host a blood drive from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 2, in the conference room at the bank.

An appointment is required for a donation and can be scheduled online at using the sponsor code “swbank” or by calling April Spreitzer at 702-853-4739. Donors will receive vouchers for two free tickets to a Las Vegas 51s baseball game.

Eligible donors must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds. All donors must feel healthy the day of their blood donation and present photo identification. Donors are encouraged to drink water in the days prior to their donation and to eat a good meal before giving blood.

SouthwestUSA Bank, with assets of approximately $215 million, is Nevada’s only private bank. Established in 2001, its unique concierge program includes such amenities as no teller lines, fully-licensed mobile banking capability, and a personal managing director for every client.
