Give back to the community by donating blood at Starlight Theatre! Community Blood Center (CBC) is the primary provider of blood and blood components to more than 70 hospitals and medical centers in the Greater Kansas City region and will hold a life-saving blood drive in the Applause Club at Starlight Theatre on Tuesday, April 12.
“When individuals normally think of essential community services, they often think about fire and police departments,” Patsy Shipley, Executive Director of Community Blood Center, said. “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.”
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 in Kansas City.
Donors are encouraged to make an appointment by visiting savealifenow.org/group using group code: EG9Z. The drive will be held in the Applause Club at Starlight Theatre, 4600 Starlight Rd., Kansas City, Mo., 64132 on Tuesday, April 12 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
