DAYTON & Darke County, Ohio – A new era in patient care began Sept. 14, 1964 when Community Blood Center (CBC) opened the doors of the region’s first central blood bank. CBC is celebrating its golden anniversary with the special edition “Celebrating 50 Years of Saving Lives” t-shirt. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment at or contact CBC Darke County Account Representative Dana Puterbaugh at (937) 997-2199 or

The 50th anniversary t-shirt features the “50 Years of Saving Lives” logo on a gold shield with a red and white stripe across a blue background. The special edition t-shirt is free to everyone who registers to donate Aug. 4 through Sept. 30 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.

CBC is also marking its milestone year with a public awareness campaign, celebrations that included the assembly of staff members to form “a human blood drop,” and the special “Summer Cruze-In 2014 Blood Drive.”

The color of the grand prize Chevrolet Cruze is “champagne silver” as a toast to CBC’s 50th anniversary celebration. Everyone age 18 and older who registers to donate at any CBC Donor Center or CBC mobile blood drive May 30 through Sept. 30 will be automatically entered in the drawing to win the 2014 Chevy Cruze.

CBC has extended its traditional summer blood drive campaign to four months (May 30 through Sept. 30) and is also allowing eligible donors to enter the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during the blood drive period. Official rules are available at
