“KSHE95 blood donors are critical to our ability to maintain the area’s blood supply at a time of the year when blood donations typically decline,” said Scott A. Caswell, CEO of the American Red Cross Missouri-Illinois Blood Services Region. “We appreciate KSHE95 very much for consistently providing such great support to area patients and the hospitals we serve.”
