    The need for blood doesn’t take a holiday during the holidays because cancer treatments, premature births, car accidents, blood diseases and surgeries continue. However, blood donations can frequently slow down due to travel and other festivities that keep many regular donors from giving blood.
    This month, Kentucky Blood Center (KBC) is inviting Kentuckians to roll up their sleeves, donate blood and be a holiday hero to a Kentucky patient. Those who register to give blood at the drive below will receive a KBC hoodie.
