September blood drives in Darke County and surrounding area

DAYTON & DARKE COUNTY, Ohio – Many great opportunities to donate in Darke County Area. Everyone who registers to donate will get a colorful pair of socks – a new gift from Community Blood Center that “knocks our socks off.” Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The “Saving Lives Knocks Our Socks Off” campaign marks the first time CBC had given away a pair of socks as a donor gift. The design features the CBC blood drop logo and a colorful dot pattern representing the different blood types. Everyone who registers to donate Monday, Sept. 11 through Saturday, Sept. 30 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive a pair.


CBC is grateful to all donors who supported the “Scouting for Donors Summer 2017 Blood Drive.” Everyone who registered to donate from May 26 through Sept. 2 at a CBC Donor Center or mobile blood drive is automatically entered in the drawing to win an American classic Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. CBC will invite 10 computer-selected finalists to the Scouting for Donors Final Drawing event Sept. 21 at the Dayton CBC. The finalists will choose identical envelopes, but only one will contain the “golden ticket” for the grand prize motorcycle. Official rules are available at
