Community Blood Center (CBC) is offering a special greeting to all who take time out from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to donate blood and help save lives: “Good Things Come to Those Who Give Blood!”
CBC is honoring those who share this most precious holiday gift with a special edition t-shirt. Beginning Monday, November 28 through Saturday, December 31 anyone who registers to donate blood at all CBC branches and most CBC blood drives will receive the “Good Things Come to Those Who Give Blood” t-shirt. The words are in the red and green colors of the season and are arranged to form the shape of a holiday gift box against a white background.
The “Good Things Come to Those Who Give Blood” message is especially important to remember during the busy holiday period. With schools on holiday break, many businesses closed or short-handed, and families vacationing and traveling, it is a challenging time for CBC to keep area hospitals supplied with the blood they demand.
“Please don’t forget us when you make your list of holiday activities and gifts for loved ones,” asks CBC Donor Relations Director Andrew Keelor. “The gift of life you give to a stranger this holiday season could very well be your most generous and wonderful gift of all.”
Even if you are on the go, technology is making it easier and faster to donate. Donors can make an appointment online, or from their smart phone, at donortime.com.
