The Owensboro Convention Center is teaming up with the Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center to host a Community Blood Drive downtown.

You have the opportunity to be a hero and give the gift of life on Wednesday, June 20. The drive will be held from 10am to 2pm inside the Convention Center Lobby. No appointment is necessary.

The Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center serves Daviess, Ohio, Breckenridge, Crittenden, Caldwell, Hopkins, McLean, Trigg, and Hancock counties and is currently in urgent need of O Negative blood.

All donors must be at least 17 years old or 16 with parental consent and weigh at least 115 pounds. Donors must check medications with staff, should eat a good meal prior to donation, and must allow 56 days between donations.

Those who make a donation at the Community Blood Drive will receive a free t-shirt and a voucher for 50% off lunch at the Artisan Café by Kentucky Legend located inside the Owensboro Convention Center.  The food in there is delicious!

Angel here and I have donated blood many times and it is a great experience!  They make you comfortable and give you snacks.  YES!
