Donors must make an appointment at or by calling 937-461-3220. The rise in coronavirus hospitalizations has created peak demand for COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma for the immediate treatment of critically ill patients. All registered CCP donors receive Kroger $25 gift card and the “COVID-19 Crisis Warrior” t-shirt.
