To counter the current low blood supply at the start of trauma season, Kentucky Blood Center will offer $15 Walmart/Sam’s Club gift cards at all donor center locations on Monday, June 12. It’s the second of many “Donor Appreciation Days” planned this summer.
Several blood types are in urgent need in the early weeks of summer, a traditionally tough season on blood centers when donor turnout typically decreases. Last week, KBC was in critical supply for four major blood types, putting local patients at more than 70 hospitals in Kentucky at risk.

Blood collected at KBC saves the lives of patients in Kentucky who require products for surgeries, diseases like cancer, traumas, organ transplants, premature births and so much more.
