(ST. LOUIS, Mo. Nov. 5, 2012) – Give a meaningful gift this holiday season by donating blood with the home of real rock radio, KSHE95, and the American Red Cross at 10 locations in Missouri and Illinois on Dec. 7 and 8, 2012.

 

You can schedule an appointment to give blood on Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., or Dec. 8 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at any of the drives listed. Everyone who attempts to donate blood will receive a specially designed KSHE95 Blood Drive T-shirt.

 

The Red Cross and KSHE95 hope to collect approximately 2,500 pints of blood during the two day drive.  Because each blood donation can help save up to three lives, approximately 7,500 patients may benefit from the generosity of area donors.

 

“The Red Cross encourages everyone to give something that means something this holiday season, and we’re proud to have KSHE95 joining us for another winter,” said Scott Caswell, CEO, Missouri-Illinois Blood Services Region. “With the help of KSHE95, we know we can help make the holidays brighter for patients in need.”
