Jackson Center to host ‘love your donor’ blood drive


Staff report



JACKSON CENTER — February is the month to “love your donor” by supporting the Jackson Center United Methodist Church blood drive Tuesday, Feb. 2, from 2 to 6 p.m. in the meeting room, 202 E. Pike St.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the Community Blood Center “Love Your Donor – Save Lives Give Blood” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The “Love Your Donor” campaign comes during February’s traditional celebration of St. Valentine’s Day. The t-shirt is a deep blue with a light grey blood drop and the “Love Your Donor” slogan in red and white, painted distressed lettering. The t-shirt is free to anyone who registers to donate from Monday, Feb. 1, through Saturday, Feb. 27, at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.

February is the heart of winter, a time when weather often disrupts travel and seasonal illnesses interfere with donating. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule as soon as you are able. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
