WYMT is teaming up with the Kentucky Blood Center on July 3rd to host a blood drive. The KBC bloodmobile will be at WYMT in Hazard at 199 Black Gold Blvd from 3 p.m to 6 p.m Wednesday afternoon.

Donors will receive a special "Born to Give" shirt as a thank you.

Donors must be 17 or older (16 with parental consent), be at least 110-pounds, be in general good health among additional requirements you can find on the KBC website. Donors must also show a photo ID.

The blood drive is one day only, but KBC encourages people to donate all summer. Every donor above the age of 18 who gives blood by September 6th will be entered to win a Toyota Tacoma.
