The Lake Saint Louis Police Department is sponsoring a blood drive in honor of Anna Dennis from 2-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at the Lake Saint Louis Civic Center Council Chambers, 200 Civic Center Drive.
Anna Dennis is a young cancer survivor who fought leukemia for over two years. During her treatments, she received numerous blood and platelet transfusions. Organizers say Dennis would not have survived without these transfusions.
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,” Lake Saint Louis Police Chief Christopher DiGiuseppi explained. “Please come and roll up your sleeve at the ‘Anna Dennis Blood Drive’ and help save another life.”
Walk-ins are welcome; however, it is recommended that donors schedule an appointment. To do so, visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: AnnaDennis or call 1-800-RED CROSS [1-800-733-2767].
