XENIA — The Xenia Masonic Center will host a community blood drive 2-6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the Community Blood Center (CBC) “Every Donor Makes a Difference — Give Hope, Give Blood” cancer awareness T-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 800-388-GIVE.
The “Make a Difference” campaign began with September National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and continues through October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Everyone who registers to donate through Saturday, Oct. 31 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive the “Every Donor Makes a Difference – Give Hope, Give Blood” T-shirt. The design features a “fight cancer” ribbon composed of multi-colored ribbons representing the many types of cancer.
Every donation will help cancer patients and many others in need of blood transfusions and other blood products. The CBC is encouraging the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
The blood drive will be in the center’s meeting room, 223 Corwin Ave.
