Congratulations to Aaron Salguero, winner of a Harley Davidson motorcycle at the 20th Barnett Harley Davidson Annual Blood Drive along with United Blood Services.

This was the first time Aaron Salguero of Las Cruces donated blood and by doing so, he automatically was entered for a chance to win a motorcycle.

United Blood Services and Barnett Harley Davidson of El Paso and Las Cruces teamed up once again this year to bring awareness and collect blood for our local blood banks in El Paso and Las Cruces.

Last year United Blood Services collected 1220 pints of blood but this year thanks to all the donors, they were able to collect 1363 pints of blood. Collected blood is used to treat a variety of medical conditions or illnesses such as cancer treatments, organ and marrow transplants, surgeries and blood disorders such as anemia or sickle cell disease.

United Blood Services wishes to thank the community for all their support and especially the Barnett family and all of our wonderful sponsors for another successful blood drive.
