YELLOW SPRINGS — Antioch University Midwest will host a Community Blood Center (CBC) blood drive from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Tuesday, July 22 in classroom A-105, 900 Dayton St. Everyone who registers to donate will receive the free “Donoritaville – Relax, lei back, donate. Givin’ is easy!” T-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment at www.DonorTime.com.
The tropical-colored T-shirt design features a parrot in straw hat and lei clutching an ice cream cone. The Donoritaville t-shirt is free to everyone who registers to donate June 16 through Aug. 2 and any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.
CBC’s “Summer Cruze-In 2014 Blood Drive” is also in full swing. Everyone age 18 and older who registers to donate at any CBC Donor Center or CBC mobile blood drive May 30 through Sept. 30 will be automatically entered in the drawing to win a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze. The “champagne silver” color of the Cruze is a toast to CBCs “50 Years of Saving Lives” anniversary celebration in September.
CBC has extended its traditional summer blood drive campaign to four months (May 30 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.
Donors are required to provide a photo ID that includes their full name. Past CBC donors are also asked to bring their CBC donor ID card. Donors must be at least 16 years of age (16 years old with parental consent: form available at www.givingblood.org or at CBC branch and blood drive locations), weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and be in good physical health. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) changes blood donor eligibility guidelines periodically. Individuals with eligibility questions are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-388-GIVE.
