The Lake Saint Louis Police Department will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Thursday, September 24 from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Lake Saint Louis Civic Center, 200 Civic Center Drive, 63367.
“Hosting a blood drive coincides with the Lake Saint Louis Police Department’s core values of giving back to the community,” said Officer Susie Ochs, Community Resource Officer. “With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.”
The American Red Cross urges healthy individuals to give blood now to help ensure a steady supply for patients. The Red Cross 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.
All successful donors will receive free antibody testing. To make an appointment go to redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: LSLPD 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.
