WILMINGTON – The Wilmington and Clinton County community is teaming up with Community Blood Center to sponsor a blood drive Wednesday, Dec. 9 from noon to 6:30 p.m. at the Wilmington Eagles Lodge, 141 East Sugartree St. Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Buckeye Blood Donor” football t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The “Buckeye Donor” campaign celebrates football championships and the holiday bowl season. Everyone who registers to donate now through Saturday, Dec. 19 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive the “Buckeye Donor” t-shirt. The design features a silver football helmet on a red background with the CBC blood drop and the map of Ohio as the helmet emblem.

The holiday season can be a challenging time for maintaining the area blood supply. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule when you can. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
