HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Dozens of people donated blood Tuesday at the annual WYMT blood drive.

"We're here to save as many lives as we can save," said Patty Coleman with the Kentucky Blood Center. "For one donation you get to save three adult lives or possibly six babies."

Donors received a $10 Walmart gift card and were entered for a chance to win a Toyota Prius.

"Donating blood is a very important thing," phlebotomist Alexis Greenwood said. "It saves many lives and not only does it save lives but it's your way of giving back and giving to other people."
