Lee’s Summit Blood Drive October 3 to Address Shortage

Lee’s Summit Blood Drive October 3 to Address Shortage

The City of Lee’s Summit, in partnership with the Community Blood Center, will host a blood drive on Oct. 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Gamber Community Center, 4 SE Independence Ave. The Community Blood Center needs donations, especially type O, Rh negative and platelet donors.

The Community Blood Center says now more than ever is the time to donate. The COVID-19 outbreak is still impacting the blood supply needed to support the health agencies within our communities. Individuals who are healthy and well are encouraged to make an appointment.

Donors can register at savealifenow.org/group using the group code KCJN. There are certain requirements to donate blood. Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good overall health. Donors can be 16 years old with written consent from a parent or legal guardian. It is also important to drink plenty of fluids and eat a good meal prior to donating blood.

Appointments are strongly recommended. Walk-ins will only be accepted as capacity allows.
