Bundle up donors, it’s cold outside

DARKE COUNTY--Temperatures are tumbling, windshields are frosting and tree lights are blinking that the holiday season is here. Community blood Center (CBC) is helping donors bundle up this December with the new “Blood Donor – Saves Lives” knit scarf in scarlet and grey.

This neck wear is both practical and stylish and arrives just in time for the gift-gathering time of year. The scarf is free to everyone who registers to donate at any CBC branch and most mobile blood drives Nov. 26 through New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31. The scarlet and grey colors are both holiday festive and unmistakably connected to the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Notice about important changes to CBC’s donor ID system - CBC has assigned new, eight-digit donor identification numbers to all donors.
