Kentucky Blood Center’s “Save Our Summer” campaign continues this week with two more “Donor Appreciation Days” on Thursday and Friday. All donors who give blood at a KBC donor center June 22 or 23 will receive a $15 Walmart/Sam’s Club gift card.
KBC’s Donor Appreciation Days are taking place this summer to counter historically poor turnout weeks during a period of traditionally high need. With many traumas requiring more than 50 unit of blood, one trauma alone can have a major impact on the blood supply.

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.
