BLANCHESTER – Blanchester Church of Christ will host a community blood drive 3-7 p.m. Thursday, May 28 at 911 Cherry St.
Donors must make an appointment at www.DonorTime.com or by calling 937-461-3220 and are asked to wear a face mask. Everyone who registers to donate will receive Community Blood Center’s new “Wake Up and Give” t-shirt.
Community Blood Center safeguards against COVID-19 transmission include checking the temperature of donors before they enter a blood drive, requiring all staff and donors to wear face masks, and requiring donors to make appointments. If all appointments to a blood drive are filled, donors are asked to please schedule on a different day.
CBC has launched the “Wake Up & Donate Blood Drive” to anticipate the traditional increase in demand for blood donations during the summer months. Everyone who registers to donate May 4 through Oct. 31 is automatically entered in the grand prize drawing for a luxury Sleep Number bed.
The campaign includes three special-edition donor t-shirts and CBC is challenging donors to collect all three designs.
