American Red Cross (Clay/Platte Counties)
The Library is sponsoring a blood drive for the American Red Cross. We invite members of the community to consider donating blood and supporting this lifesaving initiative to help ensure reliable blood inventories in their area and beyond. Please make an appointment to donate blood online at www.redcrossblood.org. Eligible donors will need to be at least 17 years old (16 with written parental consent), weigh at least 110 lbs., and generally be feeling well the day of the donation. There is no upper age limit to donating blood! Call the Red Cross toll free with other eligibility questions at 1.866.236.3276. Please allow an hour for your donation and bring any form of photo ID with you. Your single blood donation could save up to three lives!
