The drive – organized by Community Blood Center (CBC) – is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, at Sabetha City Hall Gym located at 805 Main Street. Donors present will receive a free Royals t-shirt.

For additional details, contact Guy Niederhauser at 816-210-6801 or gniederhauser@cbckc.org.

CBC is the primary provider of blood and blood components to 70-plus hospitals and medical centers in the Greater Kansas City region.

“When individuals normally think of essential community services, they often think about fire and police departments,” said Chelsey Smith, Director of Public Relations for Community Blood Center. “Community Blood Center and its donors are very similar to police officers and fire fighters. We make up a life-saving team that is here to meet the needs of local patients. Our volunteer donors roll up their sleeves and do so without hesitation.”

In the Greater Kansas City area, one in three people will need blood at some point in their life and nearly one in seven hospital admissions requires a blood transfusion. This means nearly 600 donations are needed every day to meet hospital demand, and with a limited shelf life, supplies must be continually replenished. In just 60 minutes, you can donate one pint of blood and Save a Life, Right Here, Right Now in your own community.
