Blood donors can save lives Print E-mail

Community Blood Drive ~ Monday, February 10

Area residents are invited to be life-savers at the upcoming Kentucky Blood Center (KBC) blood drive.

The Pendleton County Community Blood Drive is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 10 on the KBC bloodmobile at Pendleton County High School. Pendleton County High School students will also be hosting a blood drive earlier in the day.

Donors will receive a black long-sleeve KBC T-shirt.

KBC is headquartered in Lexington where it operates Beaumont and Andover donor centers. KBC also has donor centers in Somerset and Pikeville and provides blood drives throughout the eastern half of the Commonwealth.

All blood that is collected by KBC is returned to the Beaumont Donor Center where it is processed, prepared and stored for shipment to Kentucky hospitals.

Donated blood components are vital to a wide range of treatments including cancer, trauma, sickle cell, organ transplant, surgeries and many more.

With the recent wintry weather, KBC has had many cancelled blood drives and experienced lower than expected donor turn outs.

To make an appointment for this blood drive, to find other convenient donation locations or for more information, visit kybloodcenter.org or call 800-775-2522.

Blood donors must be 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, which can be found at kybloodcenter.org.

KBC, the largest FDA regulated blood bank in Kentucky, is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring a safe, adequate blood supply for patients at nearly 70 Kentucky hospitals and clinics in more than 60 counties. KBC relies on volunteers to donate 400 pints of blood per day to meet area patients’ needs. Over the last year KBC distributed nearly 130,000 blood components.
