WINTER WEATHER CLOSINGS CREATE URGENT NEED FOR BLOOD DONORS

February 7, 2020

DAYTON, Ohio - Community Blood Center is facing an urgent need for blood donors due to Friday's weather-related closings and blood drive cancellations. Eligible donors are urged to come to the Dayton Community Blood Center, 349 S. Main St., Dayton, make an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call (937) 461-3220.

Winter weather and hazardous driving conditions caused schools to close across the region Friday morning.  The closings of Northmont High School and West Liberty-Salem High School forced the cancellation of two important blood drives.  Together they were projected to produce 200 units of blood.  

No other CBC mobile blood drives are taking place today. Re-scheduled dates for the Northmont and West Liberty-Salem blood drives are undetermined.

Eligible donors who can safely travel are encouraged to donate at the Dayton CBC Donor Center Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.  All donors are asked to keep appointments if they can or reschedule as soon as they are able.

"Our mission is to make up the 200 donations we counted on today at Northmont High School and West Liberty-Salem High School," said CBC Donor Relations Director Tracy Morgan. "We will need help maintaining the hospital blood supply through the weekend and replenishing the supply next week."
