Next Community UMC blood drive June 10


BROOKVILLE – Community United Methodist church will sponsor its monthly Brookville community blood drive Wednesday, June 10 from 12:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at the Christena Leiber Center at Brookville’s Golden Gate Park, located 545 Upper Lewisburg Salem Road.

Donors must make an appointment at www.DonorTime.com or by calling 937-461-3220 and are asked to wear a face mask.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive Community Blood Center’s summer blood drive campaign “Wake Up and Give” T-shirt.

Community Blood Center safeguards against COVID-19 transmission include checking the temperature of donors before they enter a blood drive, requiring all staff and donors to wear face masks, and requiring donors to make appointments. If all appointments to a blood drive are filled, donors are asked to please schedule on a different day.

CBC has launched the Wake Up and Donate Blood Drive to anticipate the traditional increase in demand for blood donations during the summer months.

Everyone who registers to donate through Oct. 31 is automatically entered in the grand prize drawing for a bed manufactured by Sleep Number.

The campaign includes three special-edition donor T-shirts and CBC is challenging donors to collect all three designs. Eligible donors can increase their chances of winning the Sleep Number bed by entering the drawing up to three times during the campaign.
