St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church holding blood drive


FAIRBORN — St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church will host a community blood drive Saturday, May 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, 1501 North Broad St., Fairborn.

Donors must make an appointment at www.DonorTime.com or by calling 937-461-3220 and are asked to wear a face mask. Everyone who registers to donate will receive Community Blood Center’s new “Wake Up and Give” T-shirt.

Community Blood Center safeguards against COVID-19 transmission include checking the temperature of donors before they enter a blood drive, requiring all staff and donors to wear face masks, and requiring donors to make appointments. If all appointments to a blood drive are filled, donors are asked to please schedule on a different day.

CBC has launched the “Wake Up & Donate Blood Drive” to anticipate the traditional increase in demand for blood donations during the summer months. Everyone who registers to donate through Oct. 31 is automatically entered in the grand prize drawing for a luxury Sleep Number bed.

The campaign includes three special-edition donor T-shirts and CBC is challenging donors to collect all three designs. Eligible donors can increase their chances of winning the Sleep Number bed by entering the drawing up to three times during the campaign.
