Although summer 2023 has followed a familiar script of decreased donor turnout and alarmingly low levels of available blood, donors at Kentucky Blood Center can pull off the blockbuster of the summer by boosting the blood supply.
KBC is offering two free movie tickets for each donor who gives blood June 26 through July 5 at all donor centers.
