DAYTON, Ohio— When the “frost is on the pumpkin” you need coffee with clout to start the day, or a steaming warm-up after a brisk autumn walk. Community Blood Center (CBC) is offering the gift of a hefty stoneware mug to help donors welcome the change of seasons with gusto.
Beginning Monday, October 3 through Saturday, October 15 anyone who registers to donate at all CBC branches and most CBC blood drives will receive a speckled red stoneware mug with the inscription “Blood Donor – Every Drop Counts.”
The mug is the first in a series of CBC fall give-aways that celebrate the dropping temperatures, changing colors and tradition-laden holiday celebrations of autumn in the Midwest. In addition, anyone who registers to donate at the downtown Dayton CBC branch can enter drawings this fall for a series of handmade afghan blankets, each with a theme unique to the season.
