Kentucky blood center " legit or not"

I am am a donor at the kentucky blood center, i visit pretty often and am very pleased with there work. just for the purpose of talking about the economy the kentucky blood center is a non for profit organization and they make alot of money by selling there blood supply to the agencies that are in need of it. this money, where does it go and there is no one that can convince me that they make just enough to pay the bills. i know the machines to do these procedures are expensive but with the amount of money made withing six months they are paid for in full. the board that oversees this non for profit organization can not be found any where and there are certian documents that are supposed to be posted to the public. if i where president Obama i would put some focus on some of these businesses as well. my next posting will be about the blood born pathigen procedure if you do not know what this is and you donate blood at the kentucky blood center locations you might want to take time and read up on it.
