DAYTON & Darke County, Ohio – Greenville Grace Church located at 4805 State Route 49, Greenville will host a community blood drive from 3:00-7:00 pm. Appointments are encouraged. If you’re looking to get your hands on one of the new CBC cookbooks this drive might be for you. Schedule your appointment to donate today.

Cookies are a time-honored tradition at blood drives, but the new “I Did it for the Cookie” Cookbook by Community Blood Center (CBC) proves donors have an appetite for much more.

The “I Did it for the Cookie” Cookbook is a first for CBC. Now through Saturday, May 12 anyone who registers to donate at any CBC branch location and most community blood drives will receive a free copy of this original, donor-inspired publication.

The new cookbook is a gift from donors for donors. CBC gathered the recipes from blood donors, blood drive organizers and volunteers, friends, supporters and staff members. The result is a tidy collection of more than 270 dishes presented in a 175-page, soft cover, spiral bound cookbook. As it says in the dedication, this publication is a tribute to those willing to help others:
”In this recipe book we celebrate not only the time-honored tradition of the blood drive cookie, but also the connection between sharing the gift of life and sharing a table. Blood drive volunteers draw from their richest recipes to say a sincere “thank you” to donors. They cook, bake and assemble delightful dishes to help donors replace what they have sacrificed and to provide the warm satisfaction that comes from doing good and eating well!”

Technology is making it faster and more convenient than ever to schedule your next blood donation. Just use your computer or smart phone to make an appointment online at or contact Dana Puterbaugh, Darke County Account Representative at 937-997-2199/ You can also schedule your next appointment using your mobile device to scan the DonorTime QR code.

Please remember that appointments have priority and walk in donors are always welcome as the schedule permits. This just means that if a donor walks in and all appointments are filled at the time, blood center staff will let the donor know when the next available appointment is and offer the choice to wait or come back at a time that is available.

Please always allow 45 minutes to 1 hour to get through the entire process, even with an appointment.
