DAYTON, Ohio - Earth Day is a reminder to be good to others and Mother Earth.  Donate April 16 through April 23 in the "Giving Comes Naturally" donation campaign and you could win a spring garden makeover.  

Everyone who registers to donate April 16 through April 23 at any Community Blood Center mobile blood drive or the Dayton CBC is automatically entered in the drawing to win a $250 gift card for online plant nursery. 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 retreating 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.
