Fletcher United Methodist to host blood drive


FLETCHER — Support the summer blood supply during the critical July 4 holiday period and get a chance to “Pick Your Prize” when you donate at the Fletcher United Methodist Church community blood drive Monday, June 26, from 3 to 7 p.m. at 205 S. Walnut St., Fletcher

Make an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com, call 937-461-3220, or use the Donor Time app.

Everyone who registers to donate receives the “Sunshine & Saving Lives” beach towel and is automatically entered in the June 19-July 1 weekly “Pick Your Prize” drawings to win the choice of a YETI Roadie 60 cooler, Ascend kayak or a Blackstone grill.

CBC is in critical need of multiple blood types. Both experienced donors and new donors are needed to address the current shortages and to build a crucial reserve for the Fourth of July holiday period.

You can save time while helping save lives by using “DonorXPress” to complete the donor questionnaire before arriving at a blood drive. Find DonorXPress on the Donor Time App or at www.givingblood.org/donorxpress.

Blood donation requirements: donors are required to provide a photo ID that includes their full name. Past CBC donors are also asked to bring their CBC donor ID card. Donors must be at least 17 years of age (16 years old with parental consent: form available at www.givingblood.org or at the Dayton CBC and mobile blood drive locations), weigh a minimum of 110 pounds (you may have to weigh more depending on your height), and be in good physical health. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) changes blood donor eligibility guidelines periodically. Individuals with eligibility questions can email [email protected] or call 937-461-3220.
