DAYTON & DARKE COUNTY, Ohio –Just as a lighthouse beam guides ships through rocky waters, Community Blood Center (CBC) is counting on the “iFocus on Saving Lives” campaign to help navigate the slow summer months and especially the challenging July 4th holiday week.

Everyone who registers to donate at any CBC branch or mobile blood drive Monday, June 25 through Saturday, July 14 will receive the new “iFocus on Saving Lives, iGive Blood” t-shirt. The design features a yellow and white striped lighthouse on a navy blue background against drifting clouds and mirrored waters.
CBC is always challenged to maintain a safe and ample blood supply during the summer months because of school break, family vacations and outdoor activities. This is especially true during the busy July 4th holiday week.

Donate blood this summer and you could be driving a new car in the fall. Everyone 18 or older who registers to donate at any CBC branch or mobile blood drive now through Saturday, Sept. 1 is automatically entered in the drawing to win a new “race red” 2012 Ford Focus. The “iFocus on Saving Lives” Ford Focus summer giveaway campaign is sponsored by REACH Magazine and Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln of Greenville. Official rules are available at

Notice about important changes to CBC’s donor ID system - CBC has assigned new, eight-digit donor identification numbers to all donors. When donors present their current CBC Donor ID card at a CBC branch or mobile drive it will be noted for replacement and the donor will receive a new plastic Donor ID card and key fob card in the mail. Donors must use their new Donor ID number to schedule appointments on

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 You can also schedule your next appointment using your mobile device to scan the DonorTime QR code.
