Blood Drive Coming up Today

‘Tis the Season to Be Giving with Kentucky Blood Center

While the holidays are a joyous time for many, it can be difficult on the blood supply. To ensure everyone has a safe and happy holiday season, Kentucky Blood Center is urging donors to give back by donating blood.

Donors who give blood at the drive below will receive a limited-edition “Donating is My Favorite” T-shirt.

Blood donation is vital for many healthcare treatments and procedures, including the fight against cancer, traumas, surgeries, premature births, organ transplants, diseases like sickle cell disease, anemia and so much more. The generosity of Kentuckians is critical for Kentucky Blood Center to supply more than 70 local hospitals.

On average, one in four people will need a blood transfusion in their lifetime.
