The summer months are always challenging for the blood supply, and with the effects of the pandemic still lingering, CBC needs your help now more than ever. Please consider donating at the upcoming Church of the Resurrection blood drives.

Community Blood Center (CBC) requires nearly 600 donations of blood, platelets, and plasma each and every day in order to meet the needs of patients in the Greater Kansas City area? 1 in 3 people will need blood at some point in their lifetime.

Did you know:

  • Car accident victims can require up to 50 units of blood
  • Cancer patients often require a platelet transfusion with each chemotherapy treatment
  • Burn victims can require over 20 units of plasma.
  • Sickle cell patients can require blood transfusion every 3-4 weeks for their entire lives.

Can I Donate? To find out, we encourage you to go online and visit the Community Blood Center to get the facts.

Did you know in the spring of 2020 the FDA updated several blood donor eligibility guidelines that allowed many who were previously deferred to be eligible to donate again? If you were previously deferred, there’s a chance you may now be eligible to donate. or call their medical team at 800.688.0900.

We dedicate Church of the Resurrection's Blood Drive donations in memory of Matthew Joyner, who entered God's kingdom eternal on April 20, 2005. The blood drive began in response to Matthew's need for blood during a surgery. With this young man's legacy, it has grown to a quarterly drive blessing thousands with the gift of life from blood transfusions!
