EATON — The Greenbriar Senior Living Campus in Eaton will help boost the Memorial Day holiday week blood supply and kick off the Community Blood Center “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” campaign with a community blood drive Wednesday, May 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The CBC Bloodmobile will be at 501 West Lexington Road.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Giving Blood, Saving Lives, That’s How I Roll! Donate Blood” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.
Everyone who registers to donate will also be automatically entered in the “Scouting for Donors” drawing to win an Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. Donors must be 18 by the end of the campaign period to win.
Scouting for Donors summer blood drive
CBC is scouting for donors this summer, and banking on a true American legend to help boost the summer blood supply. The “Indian Scout Sixty” is descended from the historic line of America’s legendary Indian Motorcycle Company, www.indianmotorcycle.com.
Enter the drawing to win the Indian Scout Sixty by registering to donate May 26 through Sept. 2 at a CBC Donor Center or any CBC mobile blood drive. Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period.
CBC will select the winner from a group of 10 randomly-drawn finalists in mid-September. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
Summer is an important time to donate
The Memorial Day holiday week presents challenges for maintaining the blood supply. It is the traditional kick-off to summer, a time when high schools close for summer break, families make travel plans and everyone gets busy with outdoor activities. All this can disrupt blood donation schedules. 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.
