The bright red “Find Your American Spirit” features a “51-star” flag-within-a star emblem. It’s the featured patriotic theme for the month of July and is the second t-shirt design in the “Scouting for Donors Summer Blood Drive” campaign.

Everyone who registers to donate with CBC will be automatically entered in the “Scouting for Donors” drawing to win an Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. Donors must be 18 by the Sept. 2 conclusion of the campaign to win.

Call for summer donors

Summer is a challenging time for maintaining the regional blood supply. High school summer break, family vacation travel and outdoor activities are disruptive to blood donation schedules. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule as soon as possible. THE CBC especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors.
