SABINA – Community Blood Center needs heroes to help rebuild the blood supply by supporting the SRWW Joint Fire District community blood drive Monday, June 15 from 3-7 p.m. at 179 South Jackson St., Sabina.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the new “Hero – Giver, Lifesaver, Donor” face mask in addition to the free “Wake Up & Give” t-shirt.
Donors must have an appointment and must wear a face mask at CBC blood drives. Make an appointment at www.DonorTime.com or call (937) 461-3220.
Blood collection fell to historic lows during the height of the pandemic. Only the dedication of donors and a substantial drop in hospital usage prevented a blood supply crisis. Hospital blood usage is returning to normal and the rising demand for blood donations comes with the traditional challenges of vacation travel, no high school blood drives, and an increase in accidents and trauma cases.
