The Community Blood Center has issued an urgent call for healthy blood donors. It says the current local blood supply is at a dangerously low level.

The Independence School District has agreed to host a blood drive from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday at William Chrisman High School, 1223 N. Noland Road.

Appointments to give blood are preferred and can be made by visiting and entering the group code “QH” or by calling Dawn Eblen at 816-352-2342.

Precautions will be taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and donors are asked to wear a mask or will be given on when they arrive.
