(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) The Community Blood Center held a ceremony Thursday thanking the individuals and organizations that make regular donations to the blood center.

Various employers were recognized for their efforts holding blood drives, Northwest Missouri State University received an award for collecting the most blood this year.

Those who work with the center said it's a resource that not only saves lives but changes them.

"We've gotta pause and remember this is truly making a difference," Patsy Shipley, Community Blood Center said. "We're collecting a unit that going to save someone's life, but also brings them hope and has a life impact that we can't begin to realize."

A warm and windy Thursday across the area as temperatures reached into the low to mid 70s. A much cooler day on Friday across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas and the winds again start to pick up out of the north which will cool our temperatures down to the 40's for highs.
