This is the community’s opportunity to collect blood to  supply local hospitals, including those in Lee’s Summit, to help save lives.  The City’s goal is to collect 40 units of blood during the event.  

Thanks to our great community, we were able to surpass our goal during the last community blood drive in October by nearly ten units.  That’s enough units to save or impact up to 100 lives. 

The requirements to donate blood are few.  Donors must be in good health, weigh a minimum of 115 pounds and be at least 17 years of age (16 yrs. with parental consent). It is also important to drink plenty of fluids and eat a good meal prior to a blood donation, which will take less than an hour.

While walk-ups are permitted on the day of the blood drive, it is preferred that donors sign-up in advance.  Doing so will prevent waiting long periods of time to donate blood.

For more information, contact the City’s Blood Drive organizer Stephanie Walters at (816) 969-1870.
