Staff report



OH Summer 17 Wings Wheel Slate


HUBER HEIGHTS — St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Huber Heights will help boost the regional blood supply during the long July 4th holiday weekend with a community blood drive Saturday, July 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon in the Fellowship Hall, 5566 Chambersburg Road.

Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Community Blood Center online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Giving Blood, Saving Lives, That’s How I Roll! Donate Blood” t-shirt and will also be automatically entered in the “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” drawing to win an Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. Donors must be 18 by the Sept. 2 conclusion of the campaign to win.

Call for donors during July 4 holiday period

The July 4th holiday week is traditionally the most challenging time of summer for maintaining the regional blood supply. Increased family vacation travel and multiple holiday activities are disruptive to blood donation schedules. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule as soon as possible. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.

Scouting for Donors blood drive

CBC is scouting for donors this summer and banking on a true American legend to help boost the summer blood supply. The “Indian Scout Sixty” is descended from the historic line of America’s legendary Indian Motorcycle Company, www.indianmotorcycle.com.

Enter the drawing to win the Indian Scout Sixty by registering to donate May 26 through Sept. 2 at a CBC Donor Center or any CBC mobile blood drive. Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period.

CBC will select the winner from a group of 10 randomly-drawn finalists in mid-September. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
