ASHLAND, Ky. – Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood, and more than 38,000 blood donations are required each day. One donation can save the lives of up to three people, and 80 percent of blood donations given to the Red Cross are collected at mobile community blood drives.

Blood drive hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, May 16, at KDMC’s Health Education Center, lower level of the Lexington Avenue parking garage. Donors will receive a free gift and refreshments will be available.

Medical history, recent medications and other factors can affect donor eligibility. To learn if you are qualified to donate blood, please call the American Red Cross at 1-800-GIVE LIFE (448-3543) or go online to and look under eligibility requirements.
