Miller-Key­stone Blood Cen­ter has rec­og­nized 20 area or­ga­ni­za­tions for their com­mit­ment to the health and wel­fare of our com­mu­nity through blood drive spon­sor­ship.

“Our Lo­cal Lead­ers cam­paign rec­og­nizes those schools, busi­nesses, church groups and other or­ga­ni­za­tions who go above and be­yond the call of duty to sup­port their com­mu­nity,” said Deb Otto, Di­rec­tor of Donor Re­sources, Miller-Key­stone Blood Cen­ter. “By host­ing blood drives with our re­gional blood provider, these or­ga­ni­za­tions are also sup­port­ing the MKBC Mis­sion State­ment, which is ‘Sav­ing lives by part­ner­ing with our com­mu­nity to pro­vide a con­tin­u­ous sup­ply of blood prod­ucts and ser­vices’.”
