Community blood drive takes place today

The monthly Russell County Community Blood Drive takes place today.

The blood drive goes from 11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. at the South Kentucky RECC Community Room, located at 2405 N. Main Street in Jamestown.

Donors will be entered to win a $100 gift card sponsored by Cooper and Associates Law.

January is National Blood Month, and the Kentucky Blood Center says donations are typically lower in December, so January is a critical month to increase the blood donation supply.

Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome. To schedule an appointment, visit
