LEWISBURG — First Missionary Baptist Church of Lewisburg is joining the Community Blood Center “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” campaign with a community blood drive Monday, June 12 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., in the multi-purpose room, 608 North Commerce St.
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 Sept. 2 conclusion of the campaign 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
Summer always presents challenges for maintaining the regional blood supply. High schools are closed for summer break, families are traveling for vacations, and everyone is busier 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.
