Happy New Year!
As we close out 2016, we’d like to say Thank You to everyone who helped make 2016 a memorable year! Overall, 14,587 people signed in to donate at either a mobile drive or at our Erie Donor Center this year. We welcomed new donors, new groups and new staff members into the CBB family, and held some amazing events such as Austin’s birthday party, Family Days, and of course CBB’s own 50th anniversary party!
A lot of changes were made, and we appreciate your patience as we continue to perfect our processes. 2017 is going to be an exciting year for Community Blood Bank!
Speaking of changes, Community Blood Bank will be closed some new holidays starting this year so please update your calendars! This year’s dates are:
January 16 (MLK Day)
February 20 (President’s Day)
March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day)
April 14 (Good Friday)
October 9 (Columbus Day)
Due to our wide coverage area (12 counties and counting!) and a 6-day workweek, our staff frequently work long days and may travel upwards of 2 hours to reach a blood drive. We want to make sure we’re providing our donors with the best customer service possible, so starting this year we’ll be taking these extra opportunities to give staff a chance to re-charge.
Celebrating National Blood Donor Month
It’s that time of year again! January is National Blood Donor Month and all month long everyone who signs in to donate blood at a mobile drive or at our Erie Donor Center will receive a coffee/tea mug, while supplies last! Make sure you take a picture of the first time you use your mug and tag us in it! Use the hastag #NationalBloodDonorMonth to help show the world how proud you are to be a blood donor!
