XENIA — Celebrate January National and Ohio Blood Donor Awareness Month by donating at the St. Brigid Catholic Church community blood drive from 3-7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 6.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the special edition “Donor Strong’ long-sleeve T-shirt.
Community Blood Center’s strategic goals for 2020 include increasing blood collections to expand its hospital partnerships; to continue recruiting new platelet and plasma donors with a new emphasis on double red blood cell donors; and to harness the spirit of the Dayton Strong movement to inspire more blood donors and blood drive sponsors.
The white, long-sleeve T-shirt with red “Donor Strong” lettering is a gift to everyone who registers to donate Jan. 4 through Feb. 29.
Many CBC community blood drives now include the opportunity to donate platelets and plasma, which are critical for the treatment of cancer, trauma, transplant, and burn patients. Donors with blood types A, AB, or B positive are in high demand. Make an appointment, find out more at www.GivingBlood.org or talk to an apheresis specialist at 937-461-3220.
St. Brigid is located at 312 Fairground Road, Xenia.
