Many Kansas educators are upset about the governor's plan to repeal the school funding formula and reduce education spending. Guest commentator Aaron Estabrook, who sits on the Manhattan-Ogden School Board, is one of them.
January 27, 2015, Kansas City, MO – Community Blood Center (CBC) is inviting Topeka and surrounding communities to join us at the following blood drive:
January 30, 2015
Shawnee County Health Agency
Shawnee County Library
1615 Southwest 8th Ave
Topeka, KS 66606
These blood drives will help the community maintain adequate blood supply levels. Come share the gift of life! All presenting donors for these blood drives will receive two free tickets to a Kansas City Royal’s Game in April 2015! (Tickets will be mailed in late March)
The entire donation process takes less than an hour, and a single donation can be used to save multiple lives. Donors with O-negative blood type, or “universal donors,” are especially encouraged to donate, as their blood can be used in emergencies. To meet patients’ need for blood and blood components, CBC requires approximately 580 donors every weekday. About one in seven hospital admissions requires a blood transfusion, and with a limited shelf life, supplies must be continually replenished.
To donate blood or for information Call Toll Free: 1-877-468-6844 or visit us online at: www.savealifenow.org
If you cannot donate but still wish to participate in bringing crucial blood products to patients in need, please ask someone to donate for you, or consider volunteering at a local blood drive.
In order to donate you must be at least 16 years of age (parental consent required for 16 year olds), weigh a minimum of 115 pounds and be in generally good health. In just 60 minutes, you can donate one pint of blood and Save a Life. Right Here, Right Now in your own community.
