Kentucky Blood Center wants to infuse donors’ summer with a little cash, so the nonprofit is giving away two $500 gift cards each week for a total of $16,000 awarded through September 18.

All donors who register to donate at a KBC donor center or mobile blood drive each week will be entered to win one of two $500 gift cards.

The promotion starts May 30. Donors will be entered into the week’s drawing each time they give during the summer. In addition, each registered donor will receive this great patriotic “Be a Hero” shirt (while supplies last).

“The summer months are always tough on the blood supply and given the current state of the economy, we know our donors are experiencing difficult times as well,” said Mandy Brajuha, Director of Marketing for Kentucky Blood Center. “In an effort to help our loyal donors ‘rebound’ this summer, we’re encouraging blood donation to help Kentucky patients and providing a little economic stimulus to 32 lucky winners.”

Donors can help boost the blood supply and get entered to win at this upcoming blood drive:
