Staff report

SIDNEY – The Sidney Apostolic Temple will host a “Be The Good” community blood drive Thursday, April 6, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, 210 S. Pomeroy Ave.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the Community Blood Center inspirational “Believe There is Good in The World – Be The Good” T-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at or call 800-388-GIVE.

This spring CBC is recognizing donors as a special force for good in the world with the “Be The Good” campaign.

Everyone who registers to donate at a CBC Donor Center or most CBC mobile blood drives from March 27 through April 29 will receive the “Believe There is Good in the World – Be The Good” T-shirt. The message both honors donors for their altruism and encourages new donors to act for the well-being of others.

The ice blue T-shirt features a block letter design with two messages. The “Be The Good” message appears in white lettering as an anagram of the “Believe There is Good in the World” message in silver lettering. The CBC blood drop and #GiveBlood are in red.

Community Blood Center is now testing blood donations for the Zika virus and is no longer deferring donors for travel to Zika endemic areas. By consenting to give blood, donors are agreeing to participate in a research study to help develop better testing systems to protect the blood supply.
