First Presbyterian blood drive in memory of Joyce Kinzie

Send a link to a friend
May 21, 2012]  First Presbyterian Church sponsors the regional blood drive in June, and it is a memorial to the late Joyce Kinzie, who was a member of First Presbyterian and very active in the Lincoln community. This year the blood drive is at the Masonic Temple on North Kickapoo Street from noon to 6 p.m. on June 4.

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.
