The Community Blood Center has scheduled multiple blood drives over the next month in Clark, Champaign and Logan counties.

The Center is asking for help to overcome a mid-summer decline in the blood supply and urgent need for type O blood.

To make an appointment, visit, call 937-461-3220, or download the new Donor Time app. Everyone who registers to donate will get the new “Hit a Double” insulated beverage bottle, while supplies last.

Register to donate from July 18-30 at any CBC mobile blood drive or the Dayton CBC Donation Center and be entered in a drawing to win a pair of 2022 season tickets to the Bengals. The package includes all 10 home games, beginning with the preseason opener Aug. 12.

CBC has new online tools donors can use. Download the new “Donor Time App” from any app store and use it to find blood drives and make an appointment to donate. Donors can also use “DonorXPress” to complete the donor questionnaire before they arrive for their blood donation. Find DonorXPress on the Donor Time App or at

Donors must provide a photo ID that includes full name while past donors are asked to bring their CDC donor ID card. You must be at least 17 (16 with parental consent: form available at or CBC drive locations) and weigh at least 110 pounds (you may have to weigh more, depending on your height), and be in good physical health.
