Thank you to everyone who came out an donated during Zimmer Radio’s blood drive for the American Red Cross this week! It was a huge success, and hundreds of lives will be saved. Stacy Burks, the Exec. Director of the American Red Cross of Southern Missouri tells News Talk KZRG just how many.
“So 80 pints of blood could help up to 3 people with each pint, so that’s 240 people.”
Burks also wanted to reiterate how grateful they are for your generosity.
“The community in Joplin and those across the Four States region should be really proud of themselves. We so appreciate their willingness to give blood, and those that had to wait beyond their appointment and were still able to give, we sincerely appreciate their determination to donate in these trying times.”
There is still a critical need. Find out how you can donate here.
