Emergency blood drive today after storm cancellations

Recent winter storms cancelled more than two dozen blood drives and officials are asking people to donate  today to increase very low inventory.

People can call the Community Blood Center at 816-645-4323 to make an appointment to donate at a time between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

           Make an appointment

The drive is at the University of Kansas Hospital.

All blood types are at less than a day of inventory, especially O negative, A negative, B Negative and B positive, officials said.

They also said it is unlikely they would turn away anyone who shows up without an appointment.
