Blood Drive to be held onsite May 20

Share a little, care a little – donate blood and ‘true’ donors could receive a $10 Walmart gift card, a chance to win a $25 Speedway gift card and 25 worksite wellness points.

The Kentucky Blood Center’s Bloodmobile will be onsite 2-5 p.m. Tuesday, May 20, outside the Supply Room entrance at 650 Newtown Pike.

  • Employees donating blood (with supervisor approval) must sign up thru Sara Gabbard/Human Resources (ext. 2301 or email).
  • First appointment slot is 2 p.m. and the last appointment slot is 4:45 p.m., with appointments every 15 minutes in between.
  • Also available: three (3) “Double Red” donor appointment slots to donate RED BLOOD CELLS at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. (donating red blood cells takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes).

Donors are often turned away due to low iron. View this Hemoglobin attachment to learn what food choices to help increase your iron thus making your chances of donating blood greater. You can also view these common questions about blood donor eligibility to learn more about donating blood.
