Live read: Blood drive
The need is greatest this time of year with regular donors not as available to give.
If we can give any additional on air support for the Blood drive by our personalities it would be appreciated...but not expected. Also, if any of them are available to stop by LifeServe in the East Village on Christmas Eve either before or after a shift it would also be nice…not expected by any means.
Who: LifeServe Blood Center of Des Moines
What: iHeart Christmas Eve Blood Drive
When: December 24th from 7am – 2pm
Where: 431 East Locust Ave. Des Moines & 10469 Hickman in Urbandale
