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 will be conducting a blood drive on Thursday, Nov. 18 at Eudora High School in the Commons area 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 Eudora can help meet those needs by donating blood at the blood drive on Thursday, Nov. 18 from 2:00 PM to 6:00PM at Eudora High School in the Commons area, 2203 Church Street.
