The Kentucky Blood Center will hold a blood drive on Friday, April 2, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Lions Park Community Center (133 Factory Street, Harrodsburg).

Despite the ongoing pandemic, Kentucky hospitals continue to transfuse blood to patients at higher rates than normal. Kentucky Blood Center, which provides blood to 70-plus Kentucky hospitals relies on volunteer donors to roll up their sleeves as often as possible to help meet the needs of neighbors battling injury and illness.

In a time where many are saying, “Something’s gotta give,” the Kentucky Blood Center appreciates the thousands of individuals who roll up their sleeves and answer the call to give blood. As a thank you, donors at the upcoming blood drive will receive a great t-shirt.

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.

Appointments are preferred to ensure social distancing. Walk-ins are accepted as space allows. A face covering is required to donate. To schedule a donation, visit kybloodcenter.org or call 1-800-775-2522.
