CBC schedules Blood Drives for February

DAYTON – There are many ways a single blood donation saves lives, and just as many ways to describe the type of people who make it possible. During the heart of winter Community Blood Center (CBC) is reminding donors of the powerful potential they hold for giving hope and changing lives with the “You Can Be a Blood Donor” campaign.

The “You Can Be a Blood Donor” t-shirt is free to everyone who registers to donate at any CBC branch and most mobile blood drives through Feb. 23. The design features a colorful and creative description of the kind of donor anyone can be, from “Cool, Amazing, Strong and Awesome” to “Great, Powerful, Phenomenal and Inspiring.”

As January National Volunteer Blood Donor Month ends, CBC continues to face the challenges to the blood supply that come with winter. Snow has already disrupted CBC center and mobile blood drive schedules, and the unusually severe flu and cold season has prevented many people from donating. CBC reminds new and returning donors to schedule an appointment to give when you are able.
