Community Blood Center Of Dayton Signals Need For Type O Blood

Community Blood Center

The Community Blood Center (CBC) in Dayton says they are in desperate need of Type O blood.

Mark Pompilio with the CBC says, despite the weather, they have mobile blood units out this week that people can get to.

“With the caveat that we know that in some situations the roads are rough today," he says. "So, people have to be safe, make a careful choice and decision, and if they can't donate today to try to get in to see us at a mobile blood drive or down at the data center."

The CBC says blood supplies have taken a hit throughout the pandemic, especially as local high schools have been cancelling drives.
