DAVE KNAPP FORD LINCOLN BLOOD DRIVE IS MAY 27

MEMORIAL DAY PERIOD IS AN IMPORTANT TIME TO DONATE

CBC ‘Military Appreciation Month
Blood Donor’ t-shirt design.
DAYTON, Ohio – Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln, Inc. in Greenville is honoring May Military Appreciation Month and helping with the holiday blood supply by hosting a community blood drive Saturday, May 27 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. The Community Blood Center Bloodmobile will be at 500 Wagner Ave.

Everyone who registers to donate will receive the “Military Appreciation Month Blood Donor” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

An announcement on the Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln Community Blood Drive Facebook page includes the message, “Tell them Kristina sent you,” in memory of Kristina Knapp Bradley who passed away in February. She served as marketing director and blood drive coordinator at Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln, Inc. and was a dedicated blood donor.

National Military Appreciation Month honors current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces and all those who have died defending our freedom. Congress designated May as NMAM because it has the most days set aside to honor the sacrifices and successes of our service members, including Loyalty Day, VE Day, Armed Forces Day, Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Memorial Day.
The CBC limited edition t-shirt is dark blue with “Military Appreciation Month” in a military insignia design and “Blood Donor” in stencil with the CBC blood drop logo and silhouettes of a saluting soldier and fighter jets. The t-shirt is a free gift to everyone who registers to donate May 1 through May 27 at a CBC Donor Center or most CBC mobile blood drives.

IT’S AN IMPORTANT TIME TO DONATE

The Memorial Day holiday period can be a challenging time for maintaining the blood supply. The Memorial Day weekend is the kick-off to summer, a time when high schools are on summer break, families are taking vacations, and outdoor activities are heating up. All this can disrupt donation schedules and challenge the regional blood supply. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule when you can. We especially encourage the continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors.
