WILMINGTON — Wilmington College will support October Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a community blood drive Monday, Oct. 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Kelley Center McCoy Room, 300 Quaker Way, Wilmington.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “I Fight Cancer – I Give Blood” t-shirt. Donors should schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The Community Blood Center “I Fight Cancer” t-shirt is charcoal heather gray with a colored-ribbon design representing awareness for the many forms of cancer. It’s free when you register to donate at a CBC Donor Center or most CBC mobile blood drives through Saturday, Nov. 4.

The “I Fight Cancer – I Give Blood” campaign represents the unique relationship between blood donors and cancer patients. Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments have a harsh impact on blood cells. Transfusions of donated blood and blood products are vital to reducing complications and saving lives.
