Community Blood Center blood drives
The Community Blood Center of Greater Kansas City is urging residents to donate blood during the week of Sept. 11.
“When the towers fell eighteen years ago, people from across the country came together to support victims of the attacks in New York. And as we approach the anniversary again this year, we are calling on residents to donate blood and help strengthen the region’s blood supply,” said Kim Peck, senior executive director of the Community Blood Center of Greater Kansas City. “When tragedy strikes, it is the blood that is already donated that saves lives, so we encourage everyone who can to take one hour to donate blood at one of our drives this week.”
• A Community Blood Center blood drive will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, at the University of Kansas Medical Center, Main, Hixson Atrium, 3901 Rainbow Blvd., Kansas City, Kansas.
