Seal of the State of Nevada

WHEREAS, the State of Nevada is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all those living in and visiting our state; and

WHEREAS, a sufficient blood supply is a public health issue both locally and nationally, and our hospitals and medical centers need a readily available supply for our residents and visitors; and

WHEREAS, one blood donation can save up to three lives, and although most of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood, only about 3% actually do; and

WHEREAS, Nevada is home to many civic-minded, blood donors who donate to help others and organizations committed to raising awareness about the importance of blood donation; and

WHEREAS, Nevada Blood Donation Day effectively serves to remind us that we need to constantly replenish our blood supply through donation and community awareness;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim September 4, 2021 as
