Special thanks to Subway and your local Red Cross for helping to sponsor the KFVS12 Summer Blood Drive.
Many of you already know about our annual Heartland Blood Drive that takes place each January. But when the Red Cross asked us to collect donations to help with this Summer's blood shortage, we didn't hesitate. That's why we're teaming with Subway and the Red Cross to sponsor the 6th annual KFVS12 Summer Blood Drive at 11 locations throughout the Heartland. Now it's easier than ever to give the gift of life.
*Potential donors should be at least 17 years old (16 with parental consent form), meet weight requirements, and be in good health. Donors will need to present a photo ID.
