DAYTON, Ohio - Community Blood Center is calling on donors to support the winter blood supply by donating during the "Super Bowl Watch Package Giveaway" campaign.

Everyone who registers to donate at any CBC blood drive or the Dayton CBC Donation Center Jan. 31 through Feb. 11 is automatically entered in the Super Bowl Watch Package drawing for an Apple TV streaming media player and a Super Bowl "Tailgate Party Time" gift basket filled with snacks and beverages.

All registered donors will also receive the "Counting on You in 2022" long-sleeve t-shirt. Schedule an appointment online at or call (937) 461-3220.

February is the heart of winter and a difficult time to hold blood drives. The traditional challenges of winter are made worse by the continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The CBC region is in low supply of Type O and A-negative blood and there are critical shortages across the country.

CBC is urging eligible community members to donate at least twice in 2022. People still working at home are encouraged to donate at a local blood drive. CBC also welcomes new platelet, plasma or double red cell donors. Call (937) 461-3220 to learn how you can help.
