Blood drive supports Joplin

You may help with the recovery efforts in Joplin by giving blood. KTVO is partnering with the American Red Cross for a community blood drive Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m. at the NEMO Fairgrounds in Kirksville.

Appointments are encouraged. You may make an appointment on-line, or by calling Sara Rex at (573) 356-1218.

You don't have to have an appointment to give blood Wednesday. Anyone at the fairgrounds by 6 p.m. Wednesday will be processed.
