Shawnee Hills Baptist holding blood drive


XENIA —Shawnee Hills Baptist Church is holding a blood drive 3-7 p.m. Tuesday, June 26.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the patriotic “Earn Your Stars and Stripes — Donate Blood” T-shirt. Also, registered donors 18 and older will be automatically entered in the Community Blood Center “Build a Better Blood Supply Summer Blood Drive” drawing to win a $5,000 home improvement gift card.

July 4 activities and travel often disrupt donation schedules and can impact the blood supply. Donors who must miss an appointment to donate are encouraged to reschedule when possible. Donors are also encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 800-388-GIVE.

The “Earn Your Stars and Stripes” T-shirt is bright blue with white lettering and the red CBC blood drop logo. It’s free to everyone who registers to donate through Saturday, July 21 at a CBC Donor Center or most CBC mobile blood drives.

Community Blood Center is counting on blood donors and their “Do it yourself” spirit to help build a better blood supply this summer.

Everyone who registers to donate blood through Saturday, Sept. 1 at a CBC Donor Center or a CBC mobile blood drive will be automatically entered in the “Build a Better Blood Supply Summer Blood Drive” drawing to win a $5,000 home improvement gift card. Donors must be 18 by the end of the campaign period to win.

Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period. CBC will announce the winner in September. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.

Shawnee Hills Baptist is at 3490 Jasper Road, Jamestown.
