The need that we fulfill is entirely local. From collection to processing and distribution, all of the blood donated remains in Kentucky, saving the lives of people in the Commonwealth.
Making blood donation in Kentucky convenient
To facilitate simple and convenient blood donations, KBC has eight donor centers across Kentucky.
We also have convenient mobile blood drives throughout the region.
On the day of your donation, you can answer your required health history questions before coming to the donation location using QuickPass.
Organizing blood drives makes the difference
In addition to our donor centers, you can also donate blood at a local business, community group, school or church that hosts blood drives. Click here to search for a blood drive near you.
The community leaders who arrange blood drives are responsible for nearly half of all of the blood that is distributed through KBC. This results in tens of thousands of units of blood every year, and is a vital component of our ability to fulfill the needs of local patients.

Right now, patients in Kentucky rely on the hard work of community leaders who host drives and on individual donors for the vital blood that they provide.
