Keara Dodds (KAY member) donating blood

KAY Memorial Blood Drive

Thunder Ridge's Kansas Association for Youth (KAY) is hosting their annual summer blood drive on July 8, at St. John Lutheran Church in Kensington. It is a memorial drive in memory of Angel Rice, who made a career of helping with blood drives. After her passing, the TR KAYS wanted to honor her by hosting a drive in her name. This will be their second drive doing this. Angel's birthday was in July. 

The drive offers Power Reds donations as well as regular donations. There are around 30 donation spots left to fill. Please schedule an appointment online or contact Robin Billings at 785-476-7539. Thank you to everyone who can donate!
