RESOLUTION NO. 060045

 

Declaring January, 2006 as National Blood Volunteer Donor Month.

 

WHEREAS, January has been designated as National Volunteer Blood Donor Month to recognize those individuals who have given the gift of life and to raise consciousness about the necessity of blood donation; and

 

WHEREAS, the Community Blood Center provides all the blood and blood products to 78 hospitals in a 70 county area. In order to meet demand for blood, it is necessary to collect 550 pints every day. One single pint of donated blood can save three lives; and

 

WHEREAS, there is no substitute for blood. The need for blood is never-ending, and because blood cannot be stock-piled, it is essential to rely on the goodness of kind donors who repeatedly give their blood so that others might live; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby declare January, 2006 as National Blood Volunteer Donor Month; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to David Graham, Director of Donor Recruitment for the Community Blood Center, with the appreciation of the Mayor and Council for all who donate blood and urge all people in good health to become regular blood donors and to identify blood donation as part of their civic responsibility.
