LEXINGTON, Ky. – When donors help shore up the low blood supply with Kentucky Blood Center this summer, KBC will return the favor with a chance to win a free SUV during a national vehicle inventory shortage.
At the halfway point of KBC’s “Summer Getaway Giveaway,” KBC is offering donors 18 and older the opportunity to win a 2022 Toyota RAV4 with its annual summer vehicle giveaway. Registered donors will be entered for the grand prize with each donation at any KBC mobile drive or donor center between now and Sept. 10.
KBC needs eligible donors to step up now more than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic took a toll on donations over the last two years, but the demand for blood from the 70-plus hospitals KBC serves in Kentucky never slowed down. Ranging from anything from cancer treatments to premature births, surgeries, car accidents and more, one in four people will need a transfusion in their life.
Adding strain to the already low blood supply, summer is traditionally a slow time of the year for donations because schools are closed and families travel for vacation.
Donors who donate in July and August will also receive a “Giving is Good” T-shirt. At this upcoming drive, donors will also receive a $10 Walmart gift card.

Magoffin County Community
Monday, July 25 from 1–5 p.m.

First Baptist Church Salyersville Fellowship Hall
134 Dixie Avenue, Salyersville

Donors will be entered to win one of two $25 Walmart gift cards!

Blood donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, show a photo I.D. and meet additional requirements. Sixteen-year-old donors must have a signed parental permission slip, which can be found at
Appointments are preferred and walk-ins are welcome. To schedule a donation, visit or call 800.775.2522.
