Blood Drive May 25 at Columbia Church of Christ

From Alyssa Dyer

Kentucky Blood Center will be holding a blood donation drive from 10:30amCT to 3:30pmCT on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, in the Columbia Church of Christ Fellowship Hall, 501 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY.

Appointments are preferred and walk-ins are welcome. To schedule a donation, visit or call 800.775.2522.

Please note: Online appointments and reminders (emails and texts) are shown and made in EST. For example, if you make an appointment online for 2pm, please arrive at the blood drive at 1pmCT.

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

Donors who give blood this summer will be eligible to win a 2022 Toyota RAV4 and an all-inclusive Jamaican vacation. KBC will once again offer its summer vehicle giveaway, this year giving all donors 18 and older who register between May 23 and Sept. 10 the chance to win a 2022 Toyota RAV4. Donors who get out early this summer and register to donate May 23 through July 4 at a KBC mobile blood drive or donor center will also be entered to win a five-night, six-day vacation package to the Excellence Oyster Bay in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The winner of the vacation package will be announced after July 4.

With KBC registering less than 75% of the 400 daily donors it needs to supply the more than 70 hospitals it serves through first quarter of 2022, the current shortage is especially worrisome when donation numbers historically drop off during the summer.

Help KBC dig out of the national and local blood shortage and schedule an appointment at this upcoming drive today. Donors who donate in May and June will also receive a limited-edition KBC trucker hat.
