Kentucky Blood Center (KBC) is encouraging blood donors to give blood during the summer months, which is typically a difficult time of year to keep blood on the shelves. To make this summer special after an incredibly difficult year, KBC is going to give away two cars to two lucky donors.

Donors who give blood between May 24 and July 4 will be entered to win a 2021 Toyota C-HR and donors who give from July 5 through September 11 will be entered to win a 2021 AWD Toyota Camry. Donors can donate whole blood every 56 days, which means if they donate early in the summer, they will have the opportunity to be entered in both vehicle drawings.

The next Danville community blood drive will be Wednesday, June 2 from 10:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. in the Heart of Danville Community Room at the Boyle County Public Library at 307 W. Broadway Street.

Kentucky Blood Center is a local, nonprofit community blood bank that provides blood to 70+ Kentucky hospitals from Pikeville to Paducah. For local patients at these hospitals to receive the blood products they need, KBC relies on volunteer donors to roll up their sleeves as often as possible.

Kentuckians can help save local lives at this upcoming blood drive. As a thank you, KBC donors at this upcoming drive will receive a limited-edition “Donate Y’all” hat and will be entered to win the 2021 Toyota C-HR.
