BID FAREWELL TO SUMMER, BOOST BLOOD SUPPLY AT CARNIVAL BLOOD DRIVE

August 23, 2021

DAYTON, Ohio - Community Blood Center is saying farewell to summer with a final "Summer Carnival Blood Drive" Friday, Aug. 27 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 28 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m only at the Dayton CBC, 349 S. Main St. 

There will be variety of prizes for everyone, plus cotton candy, lollipops, and the "Blood Donors are the GOAT" t-shirt when you register to donate. Appointments are encouraged at www.DonorTime.com or call (937) 461-3220.

Donors will test their luck at the "Summer Carnival" when they choose an envelope with a surprise inside. The minimum prize is a $10 gift card from Kroger, Subway or Speedway. Some lucky donors will find a Kroger $25 or $50 gift card or a token for special gift bags.

The "Summer Carnival" is a fun way to remind the community to continue donating through the final days of a challenging summer.

COVID-19 restrictions continue to limit many corporate and community blood drives. CBC anticipates a full return of high school blood drives in the coming weeks but must be prepared for COVID-related delays or disruptions in the high school blood drive schedule.

CBC is welcoming new donors and new blood drive sponsors. Call (937) 461-3220 to learn how you can help.
