KY Blood Center needs donors

Kentucky Blood Center
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Kentucky Blood Center says that cold weather has put a serious dent on the number of  donors showing up to give blood this week.

Representatives from the center say they normally get 300 donors a day on average, but this week they’ve only seen 37 donors total.  All, in all, they are 1,100 donations down for the week.

The center is hoping to offset the shortage by running two blood drives Thursday.  If you would like to donate, you can give at the UK Med Center or the KET building until 4:30 p.m.  For more information, contact Dinease at (859) 333-2022.
