CLAYTON — Community Blood Center is challenging donors to “Find Your American Spirit” by giving blood at the Fairhaven Church Northmont Campus blood drive Monday, July 17 from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Student Ministries room, 5001 West National Road, Clayton.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Blood Donor – Find Your American Spirit” T-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

CBC has launched a new and improved version of www.DonorTime.com. Anyone visiting the site after June 14 is asked to click the link to register a new username and password

The bright red “Find Your American Spirit” features a “51-star” flag-within-a star emblem. It’s the featured patriotic theme for the month of July and is the second t-shirt design in the “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” campaign.

Everyone who registers to donate with CBC will be automatically entered in the “Scouting for Donors” drawing to win an Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. Donors must be 18 by the Sept. 2 conclusion of the campaign to win.

Call for summer donors

Summer is a challenging time for maintaining the regional blood supply. High school summer break, family vacation travel and outdoor activities are disruptive to blood donation schedules. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule as soon as possible. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors.

Scouting for donors

CBC is scouting for donors this summer and banking on a true American legend to help boost the summer blood supply. The “Indian Scout Sixty” is descended from the historic line of America’s legendary Indian Motorcycle Company, www.indianmotorcycle.com.

Enter the drawing to win the Indian Scout Sixty by registering to donate through Sept. 2 at a CBC Donor Center or any CBC mobile blood drive. Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period.

CBC will select the winner from a group of 10 randomly-drawn finalists in mid-September. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
