Blood drive set for Dec. 22

TROY — Two area churches will hold blood drives on Wednesday, Dec. 22.

The First Presbyterian Church of Troy community blood drive will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. at 20 S. Walnut St., Troy.

The Troy Church of the Brethren community blood drive will be held from 1 to 7 p.m. at 1431 W. Main St., Troy.

Everyone who registers to donate will get the “Be a Hometown Hero This Holiday” fleece blanket with CBC blood drop logo. Appointments are encouraged. Schedule online at www.DonorTime.com or call (937) 461-3220.

The holiday season is an important time to donate. Many businesses and organizations are not hosting blood drives due to continued COVID-19 related restrictions and people are often distracted from donating during this busy time of holiday activities and travel.

The season of giving is a good time to give back. CBC asks community members to consider becoming a blood donor, donating more often, becoming a platelet or plasma donor, or sponsoring a blood drive. Call (937) 461-3220 to learn how you can help.
