The Kentucky Blood Center is seeking donations of negative blood types

The Kentucky Blood Center has issued an urgent request for negative blood type. People with O-negative, B-negative and A-negative blood types are being asked to donate. Officials with the blood center say the amount of blood used for transfusions varies month to month, but the amount increased in July. Negative blood types are being sent to area hospitals almost as quickly as they are being donated. Blood banks are not only seeking donations in Kentucky, but also nationwide. Eastern Kentucky residents can donate at the Kentucky Blood Center location in Pikeville at 472 South May Trial. Anyone interested in making a donation can go online to or by calling 1800-775-2522
