DAYTON & DARKE COUNTY, Ohio – Come in out of the cold and donate blood at a Darke County blood drive. Everyone who registers to donate will receive February’s special collection donor gift, the “Warming Up To Give Blood” soup crock. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at

Beethoven struck the right note when he said, “Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.” CBC is hoping to warm hearts during the heart of winter with the “Warming Up to Give Blood” soup crock and spoon. It’s a free donor gift to everyone who registers to donate Monday, Feb. 2 through Saturday, Feb. 28 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.

The ceramic soup crock is mug size with two handles, red on the inside and black on the outside, with “Warming up to Give Blood” in red lettering along with the CBC blood drop logo. It comes with a red ceramic soup spoon.

Blood is traditionally in short supply during the winter months due to the holidays, travel schedules, inclement weather and illness. January can be an especially difficult month for blood centers to collect blood donations. CBC begins the New Year with an ample reserve and careful blood collection planning in place to reliably provide the blood and blood products needed to our 25 partner hospitals in CBC’s 15-county service area.
