UCC to host cancer awareness blood drive


EATON — The United Church of Christ in Eaton will host a community blood drive Thursday, Oct. 1 from 1- 7 p.m. in the church Social Hall, 113 W. Decatur St.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the Community Blood Center (CBC) “Every Donor Makes a Difference – Give Hope, Give Blood” cancer awareness t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The “Make a Difference” campaign begins with September National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and continues through October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Everyone who registers to donate through Saturday, Oct. 31 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive the “Every Donor Makes a Difference – Give Hope, Give Blood” t-shirt. The design features a “fight cancer” ribbon composed of multi-colored ribbons representing the many types of cancer.

A blood donation will help cancer patients and many others in need of blood transfusions and other blood products. They especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
