Sidney Masonic Temple announces Nov. 9 blood drive

The new donor gift from Community Blood Center will help you be ready for winter.

It comes with that warm, fuzzy feeling you get from helping someone in need.

Many CBC community blood drives now include the opportunity to donate platelets and plasma, which are critical for the treatment of cancer, trauma, transplant, and burn patients. Donors with blood types A, AB, or B positive are in high demand. Find out more at or talk to an apheresis specialist at 937-461-3220.
