EATON — In times of need, blood donors have got you covered. Community Blood Center is facing a critical shortage of type O blood. Be a “Hometown Hero” and get a free blanket when you support the Eaton Community Church community blood drive Thursday, Nov. 11 from 12-6 p.m. at 813 Camden Road, Eaton.
Appointments are encouraged. Schedule online at www.DonorTime.com or call 937-461-3220.
Cold weather is coming, and the holiday season is fast approaching. “Be a Hometown Hero This Holiday” by donating with Community Blood Center Nov. 1 through Dec. 31 and get the new gray fleece blanket with CBC blood drop logo.
CBC is honoring “Hometown Heroes” of the COVID-19 pandemic and counting on more heroes to help keep the blood supply strong through the traditional challenges of winter.
COVID-19 restrictions continue to limit many corporate and community blood drives and CBC must be prepared for delays or disruptions that may emerge with the change of seasons.
CBC welcomes new donors, new platelet and plasma donors, and new blood drive sponsors. Call (937) 461-3220 to learn how you can help.
Blood donation requirements: Donors are required to provide a photo ID that includes their full name. Past CBC donors are also asked to bring their CBC donor ID card. Donors must be at least 17 years of age (16 years old with parental consent: form available at www.givingblood.org or at CBC branch & blood drive locations), weigh a minimum of 110 pounds (you may have to weigh more, depending on your height), and be in good physical health. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) changes blood donor eligibility guidelines periodically. Individuals with eligibility questions are invited to email email@example.com or call 1(800)388-GIVE.
