DAYTON — Shawnee Hills Baptist Church in Jamestown will sponsor a community blood drive 4-8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 26 in the church foyer, 3490 Jasper Road.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive a special edition “Celebrating 50 Years of Saving Lives” T-shirt as a tribute to Community Blood Center’s (CBC) 50th anniversary. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment at www.DonorTime.com.
The 50th anniversary T-shirt features the “50 Years of Saving Lives” logo on a gold shield with a red and white stripe across a blue background. It’s free to everyone who registers to donate through Sept. 30 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.
CBC is also marking its milestone year with the special “Summer Cruze-In 2014 Blood Drive.” The grand prize Chevrolet Cruze is “champagne silver” as a toast to CBC’s 50th anniversary. Everyone age 18 and older who registers to donate at any CBC Donor Center or CBC mobile blood drive through Sept. 30 will be automatically entered in the drawing to win the 2014 Chevy Cruze.
CBC has extended its traditional summer blood drive campaign to four months (through Sept. 30) and is also allowing eligible donors to enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
