KBC: Donate blood, get a $10 gift card

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Kentucky kids are getting ready to head back to school, and Kentucky Blood Center wants to help those parents with their back-to-school-shopping needs.

“We know the end of summer vacation is a busy time for parents and students, and it can be an expensive time, too, shopping for new clothes, new shoes and those long lists of school supplies,” said Martha Osborne, Executive Director of Marketing and Recruitment for Kentucky Blood Center (KBC).

“It’s also a difficult time for blood centers for the same reasons – people are busy with end of the summer activities or with school preparation and blood donations can slow down. That’s why KBC is offering parents the chance to help the community blood supply while also taking a bite out of those back-to-school expenses,” said Osborne.

Anyone who registers to donate blood July 23-29 at any Kentucky Blood Center donor center or mobile blood drive will receive a $10 gift card, perfect for those pens and pencils or bottles of hand sanitizer.

In addition, anyone who registers to donate will also be automatically entered to win a Toyota Tacoma 4X4. The Toyota giveaway runs June 1-Aug. 31. For more information about the truck giveaway, visit kybloodcenter.org.
