Donors needed to overcome blood shortage


DAYTON — Community Blood Center is calling on the community to help overcome an immediate and critical need for type O blood and low inventory of multiple blood types. The blood supply has not recovered from the high usage and limited collections during the July 4th holiday period and CBC has not been able to fill all hospital orders.

Donors can help immediately by donating at the Dayton CBC Donation Center where walk-ins are welcome, or at a mobile blood drive. Make an appointment at call (937) 461-3220 or use the Donor Time app.

You can save time while helping save lives by using “DonorXPress” to complete the donor questionnaire before arriving at a blood drive. Find DonorXPress on the Donor Time App or at
