LEXINGTON, Ky. – All blood donors who register to donate at a Kentucky Blood Center donor center or mobile blood drive each week through Sept. 18 will be entered to win one of two $500 gift cards.
Adair County residents can help boost the blood supply and get entered to win at the upcoming drive at the Columbia Church of Christ Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, July 28 from noon to 5 p.m. It is located at 501 Jamestown Street.
Donors will be entered into the week’s drawing each time they give during the summer. In addition, each registered donor will receive a $10 Walmart gift card.
“The summer months are always tough on the blood supply and given the current state of the economy, we know our donors are experiencing difficult times as well,” said Mandy Brajuha, Director of Marketing for Kentucky Blood Center. “In an effort to help our loyal donors ‘rebound’ this summer, we’re encouraging blood donation to help Kentucky patients and providing a little economic stimulus to 32 lucky winners.”
Blood donors must be at least 17-years-old (16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, show a photo I.D. and meet additional requirements. Sixteen-year-old donors must have a signed parental permission slip, found at kybloodcenter.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, KBC is requiring appointments for all donor centers and mobile drives to ensure social distancing. To schedule a donation, visit kybloodcenter.org or call 800.775.2522. On the day of donation, donors can complete their health history questions on a tablet, computer or smartphone prior to coming to the blood drive by using QuickPass.
