Peerless blood drive is July 19

SIDNEY — Peerless Food Equipment will help boost the summer blood supply by hosting a community blood drive Friday, July 19 from 8 a.m. to noon. The Community Blood Center Bloodmobile will be at 500 S. Vandemark Road, Sidney. Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “My Commitment Defines Me – I Donate Blood” T-shirt and a chance to win a YETI cooler and gear. Make an appointment online at or call 937-461-3220.

The YETI Adventure Package is the grand prize in the CBC Lifesaving Adventure campaign. Everyone who registers to donate from April 29 through Nov. 2 will be automatically entered in the drawing to win a YETI Tundra Cooler, plus 27 genuine YETI accessories including a pair of Base Camp chairs.

The “My Commitment Defines Me” T-shirt is free to everyone who registers to donate with CBC through Aug. 31. It’s the second of three T-shirt designs in the Lifesaving Adventure campaign and donors are challenged to collect all three.

CBC is offering new opportunities to donate platelets and plasma at community blood drives. These blood components are vital for the treatment of cancer, trauma, organ transplant, and burn patients. Platelet and plasma 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.
