Mike Blood Drive, In Honor of Corporal Michael E. Webster

On October 2, 1993 Corporal Michael Webster was hit by a drunk driver while stopping another vehicle for traffic violation.

He was struck by the drunk driver on U.S. Highway 40 in Blue Springs, Jackson County. As a result of his injuries, Webster received over 40 units of blood before dying from his injuries.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol in conjunction with Red Cross and the Community Blood Center of Kansas City has launched a statewide Blood drive.

CJCFPD or Central Jackson County Fire Protection District, Assistant Chief Paul Lininger says, “As a result, we have a special spot in our heart for him and his family. It has been our honor to promote this blood drive and help save lives on his behalf.” This initiative in addition raises awareness on alcohol-related crashes.

With drunk driving on the rise yearly, the blood donation initiative also seeks to emphasize among other things the wearing of seatbelts by driver and passengers, obedience of speed limits and road regulations and driving sober.

He’s been a Hero to everyone who know him!

This month of October, all Community Blood Centers or Red Cross Locations are open for donations. To donate blood you just need to walk in and inform any of these organizations of donating towards Cpl. Michael E. Webster’s memory.

Mike’s blood drive is all month(year) long, and you can able to donate at any Community Blood Centers or Red Cross locations. Just tell them you are donating in Cpl. Michael E. Webster’s memory and your donation will go towards his numbers so SPREAD THE WORD!
