Submitted by Lyla Edelman
Community Blood Center (CBC) is the primary provided of blood and blood components to 70 plus hospitals and medical centers in the Kansas City region. CBC will conduct a life-saving blood drive from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, at Sabetha City Hall Gym at 805 Main.
“When individuals normally think of essential community services, they think about the fire and police departments,” said David Graham, executive director with CBC. “Community Blood Center and its donors are very similar to police officers and fire fighters. We make up a life-saving team that is here to meet the needs of local patients. Our volunteer donors roll up their sleeves and do so without hesitation.”
