The Lake Saint Louis Police Department is sponsoring a blood drive in honor of Anna Dennis on Wednesday, December 16th from 2:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Lake Saint Louis Civic Center Council Chambers, 200 Civic Center Drive.

Who is Anna?  Anna Dennis is a young cancer survivor who fought Leukemia for over two years.  During her treatments, she received numerous blood and platelet transfusions.  There is no doubt that Anna would not have survived without these transfusions.  Through this battle, the Dennis family realized the legitimate need for a constant supply of blood in our area.  Every day there are kids and adults who owe their lives to blood donors.  Blood donations are used by a wide variety of patients and procedures, including surgery and life threatening accidental injuries.  Please come and roll up your sleeve at the ìAnna Dennis Blood Driveî and help save another life.

The Red Cross currently has extra precautions in place to protect donors, volunteers and staff.  In order to limit the number of people in the room you must make an appointment.  No walk-ins will be accepted and we are unable to accommodate guests.  A face covering or mask are also required when presenting to donate.  We ask that you please don your mask before entering the building.

Individuals successfully donating will receive a free COVID-19 antibody test.  To make an appointment, please visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code:  AnnaDennis or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).  Completion of a RapidPass online health history questionnaire found at redcrossblood.org/rapidpass is encouraged to help speed up the donation process.
