Blood Donation

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Blood donors who give at a Kentucky Blood Center donor center or blood drive through Friday, Jan. 8 will receive a black hoodie as a warm “thank you” for helping the post-holiday blood supply.

The Center says all blood types are needed in order to get the Kentucky blood supply back to the optimal level.
