Blood Drive at Platte Valley Bank in Platte City

Today, the Community Blood Center is at Platte Valley Bank in Platte City, MO. Bank employees and customers from all over the area are donating pints of blood to save lives. Thank you to everyone who participated today! The Community Blood Center was able to collect 26 units!

In 1958, a group of Kansas City area physicians, hospital and civic leaders became the first architects of today's Community Blood Center. Their single-minded vision was to save lives by serving the needs of patients in this community. Their mission is “to provide a safe and adequate supply of blood and blood components to meet the transfusion needs of patients in our community.”
