Trinity Lutheran Church to Host Community Blood Drive Thursday Evening

DAYTON & DARKE COUNTY, OHIO – On Thursday evening, May 24 from 3:30 – 6:30 pm, Trinity Lutheran Church opens their doors for a community blood drive. The church is located at 8520 Oakes Road in Pitsburg. Appointments are encouraged.

Now through Saturday, May 26 everyone who registers to donate at any CBC branch and most CBC mobile blood drives will receive a free t-shirt.

The shirt features a green parrot flying through a tropical jungle wearing a black witch’s hat and carrying a broom stick. It recalls the “Wicked Cool to Donate Blood” CBC t-shirt theme from Halloween 2010 and the always popular “Parrot Head” celebrations at CBC.

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.
