EATON – The Preble County YMCA will host a blood drive Thursday, Sept. 21, from 3:30- 7:30 p.m. at 450 Washington Jackson Road, Eaton. Everyone who registers to donate will get a colorful pair of socks — a new gift from Community Blood Center that “knocks our socks off.” Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.
The “Saving Lives Knocks Our Socks Off” campaign marks the first time CBC had given away a pair of socks as a donor gift. The design features the CBC blood drop logo and a colorful dot pattern representing the different blood types. Everyone who registers to donate Monday, Sept. 11 through Saturday, Sept. 30, at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive a pair.
