ubscalifornia photos downloadOur sister United Blood Services blood center in Las Vegas provided blood and blood products to area hospitals treating victims of the Oct. 1 concert shooting. United Blood Services continues to assess and stands ready to support hospitals with ongoing blood product needs. At this time, the Las Vegas operations of United Blood Services have been able to provide the lifesaving blood needed by hospitals treating victims. Already the local Las Vegas community and communities across the country are coming forward in solidarity to support and honor those impacted by this senseless shooting. It’s the blood on the shelf that saves lives when tragedy strikes. Blood has a shelf life, so it is important that donations are given on an ongoing basis. We understand that people want to come forward now to show their support, however, to effectively manage the blood supply for patients, we are asking donors to make appointments to give blood throughout the coming days and weeks. Be sure to schedule your appointment at bit.ly/cahelplv or call 805-543-4290 x "0".

ubscalifornia photos downloadYou may remember Brinley from our “Give From the Heart” Campaign last February. We were very happy to receive an update from Brinley’s Mom Sarah on how well Brinley is doing, she relayed to us that: “Last month, Brinley had a truly amazing heart check up. The cardiologist is happy that as her body is growing, her heart is also growing. She doesn't want to see Brinley again for EIGHT MONTHS and is predicting she might not even need her next surgery until her teenage years. We keep hoping and praying she never even needs another surgery. Currently, Brin is active, healthy, wild, spirited, and super proud of her awesome scar!” We are so happy for Brinley and her family!

ubscalifornia photos downloadAll too often on the #centralcoast we hear about auto accidents. Accident victims are taken to local hospitals where the blood that saves them is the blood that has already been donated, tested and is there for whoever is in need. There's been a severe dip in donations following the Fourth of July holiday. It's led to dangerously low blood supplies and has prompted a nationwide call for blood donors like you! Please book your appointment today! See link in our bio.
