A Pint for Kim Blood Drive, honoring Naperville mother, hopes to set records

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (WLS) -- The organizers of a weekend blood drive have big goals: they hope to collect 800 pints of blood. They say that would be a new record in Illinois for a single-day, single-location blood drive.

It's the third annual A Pint For Kim Blood Drive.

The event is named in honor of Kim Sandford, a Naperville mother who died of cancer. She needed more than 40 transfusions during her battle.

The blood drive is her family's way of giving back.
