The Community Blood Center, the primary supplier of blood for our local hospitals, has served hospitals in both Missouri and Kansas for almost 50 years. CBC must collect 580 pints of blood every day, more than 140,000 pints annually, to meet these needs.

To help meet this critical need, the Eastern Jackson County communities of Buckner, Levasy and Sibley will partner with the Community Blood Center at a mobile blood drive from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. July 10 at the Community Center in the Masonic Lodge building at 610 S. Sibley Street (BB Highway in Buckner).

To sign up, go to using sponsor code BSLCOMM or contact Mrs. Delores Hirst at 816-650-3763. Bring a picture ID to your appointment.
