Blood drive at senior center benefits local patients

OSAGE CITY, KS – Community Blood Center will conduct a blood drive 1:30-6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, 2020, at the Osage County Senior Center, 604 Market St., Osage City, Kan.

The blood drive is being held at a time of year when blood donations are especially difficult to come by.

Kim Peck, Community Blood Center senior executive director, said the number of donations dip during the winter months due to the holidays and cold and flu seasons in full force.

“It is an especially critical time to donate and ensure that we are able to maintain adequate levels of inventory for patients in our local hospitals,” Peck said.

Osage City individuals can help by donating blood at the blood drive. Donors are encouraged to make an appointment by visiting and using Group Code: TPI2.
