Donating blood at this drive is a way to honor Kinzie's memory.
Kinzie died in September 2010 from pancreatic cancer. At the time of
her death, First Presbyterian was planning a special blood drive in
her honor at the church. After her death, that blood drive was so
successful that the congregation decided to have the annual June
blood drive in her name.
The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is the sole provider
of blood and blood products to patients of hospitals in 14 counties,
including Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Logan County.
