Lee’s Summit Blood Drive to Address Emergency Shortage

Lee’s Summit Blood Drive to Address Emergency Shortage

In partnership with the Community Blood Center, the City of Lee's Summit will host a blood drive on Monday, July 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Gamber Community Center Ballroom located at 4 SE Independence Avenue. The Community Blood Center is offering Royals tickets to donors while supplies last.

The Community Blood Center says now more than ever is the time to donate. Cold and flu season mixed with a decrease in first-time donors have all caused blood donations to decrease significantly over the past several weeks. 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. Drinking plenty of fluids and eating a good meal before donating blood is also important.

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