Kansas City, MO – KMBZ Radio has partnered with the Community Blood Center to help increase much needed donations of blood in the Kansas City Metro and the surrounding region.

Beginning today - Monday, April 18 - and running through the week, we are encouraging everyone who can, to roll up their sleeves, take a few minutes of time, and donate some life-saving blood.

You can donate blood as an individual, but also as a group. Gather friends, family, co-workers and Give Blood Together! Once you've made your group appointment, be sure to give the group code KMBZ Radio at the registration desk when you arrive.
