About the KSHE Blood Drive:

KSHE 95 started rockin’ and rollin’ up our sleeves in the summer of 1984 - collecting a respectable 900 pints of blood. Over the years, more and more listeners participated and, in 1989, it was decided to add the Winter Blood Drive.  Since 1984,  the St. Louis community has donated over 147,000 units of usable blood possibly helping save up to 441,000 lives!  All those who attempt to donate receive a limited-edition KSHE 95 Blood Drive T-Shirt featuring the station mascot, Sweetmeat. Over the years the KSHE 95 Blood Drives has won numerous awards in the blood donor and radio industry, most recently winning 1st place for Community Service Event with the Missouri Broadcaster’s Association, and truly showcases the power and connection that KSHE has with its listeners! The success of KSHE 95 - Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center Blood Drives would not be possible without the passion and spirit of the best listeners in the world!
