DAYTON, Ohio - The demand for blood donations doesn't take a spring break or an Easter holiday. "Hop in and Donate" with Community Blood Center April 2 through April 13 and you could win a 35-pound Esther Price chocolate Easter bunny.  

Everyone who registers to donate with CBC is automatically entered in the drawing for the Esther Price bunny. All registered donors also receive the "Giving is Good" t-shirt. Schedule an appointment online at or call (937) 461-3220.

Spring has arrived with the pandemic receding and the community returning to more normal life. This means more social events, travel, and outdoor activities that distract from donating.  Don't let spring fever keep you from keeping your appointment and taking time to donate.

Type O blood remains in low supply. CBC is urging community members to donate more frequently in 2022. Set a goal to donate three times. You may also be a good candidate for donating platelets, plasma or double red cells. Call (937) 461-3220 to learn how you can help.
