St. Anne’s Episcopal Church Blood Drive to Benefit Local Patients

January 12, 2013

Last year, 28,000 individuals in our area needed a blood transfusion. 

This year, the local needs for blood are expected to rise. 

Community Blood Center, the provider of blood services to local hospitals, will be conducting a blood drive on Monday, January 21 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church located in the Sanctuary to help the local hospital patients in our area that depend on life saving blood donations.

“When individuals normally think of essential community services, they think about the fire and police departments,” said Dr. Jay Menitove, Executive Director and Medical Director with Community Blood Center.  “However, because Community Blood Center is here to meet the needs of local patients, we would hope that individuals in our community would consider us to be just as essential.”

Individuals in Lees Summit can help meet the local needs by donating blood at the Community Blood Center blood drive on Monday, January 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church located in the Sanctuary, 1815 NE Independence Ave. 

To make an appointment visit www.esavealifenow.org and use Sponsor Code saintannes. 

You may also contact Tamara Brauninger at 816.824.6281.

Just one donation can help as many as two local hospital patients. 

Community Blood Center must collect at least 580 pints of blood every day to meet the needs of our area.
