20th Anniversary of 9/11

September 10 @ 9:00 am - September 11 @ 6:00 pm

September 11, 2001 was a day of great tragedy that remains all too vivid in the minds of many people. Despite the tragedy of the day, it brought out the best in us. Millions of Americans including thousands here in Kentucky, sought to do whatever they could to help. For many, that meant donating blood.

Randy was surprised when he arrived at the center as there was “the longest line he had ever seen in his life” wrapped around the building. When Randy made it to a bed after what seemed like hours waiting to donate, he said, “I was laying there donating and I made it a promise to donate blood every 2 months as long as I can.”KBC 20 YEARS 911 Shirt.png (700 KB)
