American Red Cross, KSHE95 teaming up for 27th annual summer blood drive

July 21, 2010

The American Red Cross and KSHE95 are joining forces for the 27th Annual KSHE95/American Red Cross Summer Blood Drive. Eligible donors can give the gift of life from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6 and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7 at seven area locations (see below).

All presenting donors will receive a complimentary KSHE95/Red Cross T-shirt.  Everyone who attempts to donate at each drive location can sign up for a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Mizzou take on Illinois in the State Farm Arch Rivalry football game September 4 at the Edward Jones Dome or a chance to win a Pepsi Caps For Caps prize pack that includes a ball cap from all 30 Major League Baseball teams.


“KSHE95 blood donors are critical to our ability to maintain the area’s blood supply at a time of the year when blood donations typically decline,” said Scott A. Caswell, CEO of the American Red Cross Missouri-Illinois Blood Services Region. “We appreciate KSHE95 very much for consistently providing such great support to area patients and the hospitals we serve.”


Potential donors should be at least 17 years old (16 with a signed American Red Cross parental consent form), meet weight requirements and be in good health.  Donors should remember to bring a picture ID.
