BOTKINS — Palazzo in Botkins will partner with Community Blood Center to host a community blood drive Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., at 309 S. Main St.

CBC is expanding the opportunity to donate platelets and plasma at select community blood drives. Platelets are blood cells that help control bleeding. Plasma is the fluid component that helps maintain blood pressure. Both are vital to the treatment of cancer, organ transplant, burn, and trauma patients. New platelet donors are in high demand, especially those with blood types A, AB, or B-positive. Find out more at or talk to an apheresis specialist at 937-461-3220.
