Darke County Area August Blood Drives

DARKE COUNTY, Ohio – The Darke County area will offer several community blood drives in August.  Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Scouting 4 Donors – Ride with Passion, Give with Heart” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at or call 1-800-388-GIVE.  

It’s open throttle time as the “Scouting 4 Donors Summer Blood Drive” rides into the final month of summer. Everyone who registers to donate is automatically entered in the drawing to win an Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. Donors must be 18 by the Sept. 2 conclusion of the campaign to win.

From July 31 to the campaign finish line on Sept. 2 everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Scouting 4 Donors – Ride with Passion, Give with Heart” t-shirt.

The “Ride with Passion, Give with Heart” t-shirt is green and the design features a motorcycle engine in the shape of a heart with the CBC blood drop logo.


Summer is a challenging time for maintaining the regional blood supply and this summer has seen an unusually high demand for type O blood.  To maintain an ample blood supply CBC must register approximately 300 donors per day, despite the interruptions of the high school summer break, family vacation travel and outdoor activities. CBC encourages donors who must miss appointments to please reschedule as soon as possible.  We continue to seek the support of type O whole blood donors.


CBC is scouting for donors this summer and banking on a true American legend to help boost the summer blood supply.  The “Indian Scout Sixty” is descended from the historic line of America’s legendary Indian Motorcycle Company,

Enter the drawing to win the Indian Scout Sixty by registering to donate May 26 through Sept. 2 at a CBC Donor Center or any CBC mobile blood drive. Eligible donors can enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period.

CBC will select the winner from a group of 10 randomly-drawn finalists in mid-September.  Official rules are available at
