Update: Thank you Kansas City for filling up the appointments for our Day of Caring Blood Drive. More than 150 people donated, making a difference during this critical shortage. There is still time to help, find a blood drive near you at redcrossblood.org.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — FOX4 employees have organized a day of volunteering to celebrate Nexstar’s Founders Day of Caring, and this year they’ve chosen the local American Red Cross.

FOX4 staff will spend part of their day either volunteering at local blood drives, or donating themselves. And you can show your support for the long running organization too! You can make a monetary donation or sign up for one of the blood drives on June 16, 2023.

Come see your favorite FOX4 friends and each donor will receive one ticket to Worlds of Fun, a $10 E-gift card and be entered into a drawing for a backyard theatre. Read more details on the gift card and drawing offer on the Red Cross website.
