FAIRBORN – The City of Fairborn will help boost the winter blood supply with a community blood drive slated for 7:30 -10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15 in the Government Center, 44 West Hebble Ave.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the Community Blood Center “Rise, Shine & Give” ceramic coffee tumbler. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 800-388-GIVE.
Winter presents many challenges to maintaining the area blood supply. A high number of donors have been unable to donate this winter because of seasonal illness. If donors must miss an appointment, the Community Blood Center asks that they reschedule when they can. The CBC especially encourages eligible donors to help it with the need for type O positive and type O negative whole blood donations and type A/B platelet and plasma donations.
CBC is thanking donors for their support during the heart of winter with the “Rise, Shine & Give” ceramic tumbler with removable silicone grip. It’s free to anyone who registers to donate now through Saturday, Feb. 25 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.
