EATON — Community Blood Center is challenging donors to “Find Your American Spirit” by giving blood at the Eaton Fire & EMS Division blood drive Thursday, July 20 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Station 2 meeting room, 391 West Lexington Road, Eaton.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Blood Donor – Find Your American Spirit” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The bright red “Find Your American Spirit” features a “51-star” flag-within-a star emblem. It’s the featured patriotic theme for the month of July and is the second t-shirt design in the “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” campaign.

Everyone who registers to donate with CBC will 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.


Summer is a challenging time for maintaining the regional blood supply. High school summer break, family vacation travel and outdoor activities are disruptive to blood donation schedules. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule as soon as possible. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors.


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,

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
