Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO) is the sole local provider of blood for patients at 41 area hospitals in southwest Missouri, northwest Arkansas and southeast Kansas. Sick and injured hospital patients depend on CBCO donors to provide the lifesaving blood they need.
Area blood reserves currently are critically short of O negative blood
CBCO strives for area blood reserves to be at around a three-day supply for all blood types. O negative blood supplies are currently at less than a one-day reserve level. This is a critical shortage and O negative blood donors are strongly urged to give as soon as possible at a CBCO blood drive of donor center near you
You can help by giving blood at this upcoming blood drive:
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
12:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Ozarks Medical Center
1211 Porter Wagoner Blvd
Each donation will be awarded LifePoints as a part of CBCO’s donor rewards program. LifePoints may be redeemed online for a variety of gift cards, or points may be assigned to other meaningful causes or charities. More information on the LifePoints donor rewards program may be found at www.cbco.org.
To be eligible to give blood, you must weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, and present a valid photo ID. For more information about sharing your good health with others, please visit our website atwww.cbco.org, or call toll-free 1-800-280-5337. Thank you for giving life to your community.
