Donate blood at Ginghamsburg

TIPP CITY — Blood donors will get a chance to win a 2014 champagne silver Chevrolet Cruze when they registers to donate at the Ginghamsburg Church blood drive today from 8 a.m. to noon in the South Campus Chapel, 7695 South County Road 25-A, Tipp City. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment at www.DonorTime.com.

Community Blood Center (CBC) is saluting the great escape of summer travel, and encouraging blood donations during this busy time of year, with the “Summer Cruze-In 2014 Blood Drive.” The grand-prize Chevy Cruze is a four-door, compact LS sedan valued at approximately $19,000. The “champagne silver” color is a toast to CBC’s “50 Years of Saving Lives” anniversary celebration in September.

Everyone who registers to donate will also receive the “Honor. Duty. Donor. – Find the Hero in You” T-shirt, a donor gift to everyone who registers to donate now through Saturday, June 14 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.

The T-shirt is navy blue and features a waving American flag over the words “Honor. Duty. Donor. – Find the hero in you” in white lettering, and includes the CBC blood drop logo.
