OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

The Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center is hosting its annual "Barbecue Chicken Day" on Thursday, July 3 in Owensboro.

Blood donors will receive a free barbecue chicken from Old Hickory Barbecue and a free patriotic t-shirt.

This event is held every year around Independence Day to help increase the blood supply at the center.

WKRBC Employees say they usually see an increase in usage around the holidays and this is the time of the year when there's typically a shortage.

All blood types are needed including platelets donations.

If you would like to donate, just stop by the center anytime between 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Western Kentucky Regional Blood Center is located at 3015 Old Hartford Road.
