KBC, which serves more than 70 hospitals in Kentucky, is coming off a traditionally slow time of the year for donations. KBC has been operating on a day-or-less supply for several blood types for much of the summer, putting local patients at risk.

Celebrating 55 years of saving lives in Kentucky, KBC is the largest independent, full-service, nonprofit blood center in Kentucky. Licensed by the FDA, KBC's sole purpose is to collect, process and distribute blood for patients in Kentucky. KBC provides services in 90 Kentucky counties and has donor centers in Lexington, Louisville, Frankfort, Pikeville, Somerset and the Tri-County area (Corbin).
