Red Cross blood drive to honor nurses

(EYE ON NE KS) - Nurses are always special life savers, and their efforts will be honored Monday, May 6, with a special blood drive.

The event coincides with National Nurses Week. It will take place 10 am to 3 pm Monday, at the American Heart Association's Topeka office, 5375 SW 7th St., just west of Fairlawn.

Taylor Starling from Avalon Hospice and Tim Swenson from Angels Care Home Health are helping organize the event for the Red Cross. They joined 13's Doug Meyers, who's a local Red Cross board member, on the Red Couch to discuss the event's details and why it's so important.
