Help fight cancer by donating at the Hollywood Gaming community blood drive Friday, Sept. 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Community Blood Center Bloodmobile will be at 777 Hollywood Blvd., Dayton.
Donors must make an appointment at www.DonorTime.com or by calling (937) 461-3220.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the new “Wake Up It’s Time to Support the Fight” t-shirt honoring September Blood Cancer Awareness Month and October Breast Cancer Awareness Month or can chose the “Wake Up & Give” or “Time to Save a Life” t-shirt from earlier in the “Wake Up & Donate” campaign.
Donors will also be automatically entered in the “Wake Up & Donate” drawing to win a custom Sleep Number bed.
CBC enters the fall season with one-third of the September blood drive schedule cancelled. Many businesses and organizations cannot host blood drives due to continued COVID-19 related interruptions. High schools that began the year with remote learning have cancelled blood drives, while those still scheduled will be at reduced capacity.
CBC is seeking COVID-19 survivors to become “Crisis Warriors” by donating their antibody-rich plasma for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. CCP donors will receive the “COVID-19 Crisis Warrior” t-shirt. Learn more and register to donate CCP at www.GivingBlood.org or call (937) 461-3220.
Blood donation requirements: 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 17 years of age (16 years old with parental consent: form available at www.givingblood.org or at CBC branch & blood drive locations), weigh a minimum of 110 pounds (you may have to weigh more, depending on your height), 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 [email protected] or call 1(800)388-GIVE.
