Nebraska Community Blood Bank Hosts Blood Drive with Broadcasters Unite for Life

The Nebraska Community Blood Bank (NCBB; recently partnered with local radio and news broadcasters for the Broadcasters Unite for Life Blood Drive in which donors gave a total of 122 units of blood. The event, which took place on January 23, boasted some of Nebraska’s top broadcasters from the 10/11 News, KFRX 106.3, and KFOR Radio. Broadcasters Unite for Life is hosted twice a year in the winter and summer, which are particularly hard times of year to meet the needs of local hospitals in terms of units of blood.

Donors who attended the drive enjoyed food from Famous Dave’s, a voucher for a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, a free shirt, and more treats. Brad Anderson, news meteorologist from 10/11, spent the day encouraging others to give blood by donating while giving the weather report. The NCBB is thankful for an industry of local broadcasters who support them bi-annually through their audience.

Hosting a blood drive is a great way to support the community, and the Nebraska Community Blood Bank makes it simple for your business or organization to save lives. Contact them at or 1-(877) 486-9414 to learn more.
