CBC announces August blood drives

DARKE COUNTY – There’s no break in the summer heat wave and the demand for summer blood donations is just as relentless. The Community Blood Center (CBC) “iFocus on Saving Lives” summer blood drive campaign is reminding donors to stay focused on the goal of a strong blood supply, and the possible prize of a 2012 “race red” Ford Focus.

Everyone who registers to donate at any CBC branch or mobile blood drive through Aug. 11 will receive a free t-shirt. The gray shirt features a rare, two-sided design with “Blood Donor 2012” on the chest and the message “iFocused, iGave, I Helped Save a Life” over a blazing sun on the back.

Focus on donating blood this summer and you could be driving a new Ford Focus this fall. Everyone 18 or older who registers to donate at any CBC branch or mobile blood drive now through Saturday, Sept. 1 is automatically entered in the drawing to win a new “race red” 2012 Ford Focus. The “iFocus on Saving Lives” Ford Focus summer giveaway campaign is sponsored by REACH Magazine and Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln of Greenville. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.com.

Notice about important changes to CBC’s donor ID system - CBC has assigned new, eight-digit donor identification numbers to all donors. When donors present their current CBC Donor ID card at a CBC branch or mobile drive it will be noted for replacement and the donor will receive a new plastic Donor ID card and key fob card in the mail. Donors must use their new Donor ID number to schedule appointments on www.DonorTime.com.

Technology is making it faster and more convenient than ever to schedule your next blood donation. Just use your computer or smart phone to make an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com.
