Broadcast House and Channel 8 Eyewitness News are competing today to see who can donate the most blood as part of the Broadcaster Blood Challenge.
From 12PM-6PM Monday, residents are encouraged to come down to either Broadcast House at 48th and O Street, or KLKN studios at Arapahoe and 12th street to donate.
Communications Manager for Red Cross Blood Services of Nebraska, Samantha Pollard, tells KLIN News last March’s flooding greatly impacted their blood supplies.
“We missed out on those appointments because we had to cancel drives because we couldn’t get to towns (and) because building were flooded that were going to hold blood drives,” says Pollard. “We had to cancel about 600 blood drives in Nebraska alone.”
