Salvation Army Month
December 1 - December 31
We’re focusing on each of our 10 non-profit LifePoints Lift partner agencies throughout the year, to help educate the public on the vital work that they each perform.
LifePoints and LifePoints Lift
When you donate blood at CBCO and sign up for our LifePoints rewards program, you’ll receive LifePoints as a “Thank you” gift each time you donate. When it’s time to redeem your LifePoints, you have the option of giving them to one of our ten LifePoints Lift partner agencies. CBCO converts them to cash and sends it to the non-profits.
It’s a great way to help two non-profits at the same time — CBCO with your lifesaving gift of blood and The Salvation Army with your LifePoints which allows the organization to work toward its mission “to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.”
You’ll receive LifePoints for your donations all year round, and you can give your LifePoints to one of our agency partners at any time. Not just in November. But November is our time to share information about The Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army was founded in 1852. Every day The Salvation Army helps local men, women and children change their lives by providing them with the support and practical assistance they need to improve their lives for the better. Thousands of Ozarks residents turn to The Salvation Army each year for a hand up, not a hand out.
Community Blood Center of the Ozarks
Founded in 1995, CBCO has grown to serve 39 counties (in three states) and is the exclusive provider of blood and blood products to more than 40 hospitals in southwest Missouri, northwest Arkansas, and southeast Kansas (as of 12/1/19).
More than 60,000 donations of blood are required each year to meet the transfusion needs of our friends and neighbors. We at CBCO take the responsibility of providing that blood very seriously.
Our mission states that we will achieve this goal in a timely manner, at the lowest reasonable fee, while remaining accountable to the local community, blood donors and health care providers. With your help, we can accomplish this goal each and every day.
