Jessamine County: Christmas duets on the piano

Community blood drive Saturday at Culver’s

Be a holiday hero and donate blood from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Culver’s located at 961 North Main Street in Nicholasville. Donors receive a $10 gift card from the Central Kentucky Blood Center and a coupon for a free pint of custard.

The timing of this drive is vital because blood donations typically take a dip during the Christmas season, but the demand for blood never takes a holiday. Blood donors must be 17, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, show a photo I.D., and meet additional requirements. Sixteen-year-old donors must have a signed parental permission slip, which can be found at kybloodcenter.org.

To schedule a donation, visit Kybloodcenter.org or call 1-800-775-2522. Walk-ins are also welcome.
