Kentucky Blood Center will be offering $15 Walmart gift cards to all blood donors Oct. 24-29 as an extra thank you in helping boost the blood supply. Donors will also receive the current KBC incentive item, a “Halftime & Horses & Hoops & Heroes” T-shirt.
Blood transfusions in October are up 18% since August. At the same time, donations are down 18% in that same time period, putting an already fragile blood supply in peril.
