August 2020 at CBCO

Here’s what’s going on at Community Blood Center of the Ozarks during August 2020, Lifesavers!

This Month’s Donor Gift

All month! All successful donors at CBCO’s four donor centers and mobile blood drives will receive a CBCO Extreme Adventure T-shirt! (While supplies last).


August 17 – 28, 2020, at all four donor centers we’ll be having our Extreme Adventure Blood Drive! Donors will receive our Extreme Adventure T-shirt plus each participant will be entered in a drawing for two grand prize packages:

  • A kayak, a Lifetime cooler, and a 37 North Expeditions gift certificate.
  • A Wolfe Mountain prize pack including four Snowflex Park tickets and zipline passes for two.

All gifts are while supplies last. For more info about where to donate, or to schedule your appointment, please click HERE.

Aaron Goddard Memorial Blood Drive

Time for our fifth annual blood drive in memory of Aaron Goddard, a firefighter and former CBCO employee who passed away from cancer. Donors will get to choose between a Boots & Badges (emergency responder) T-shirt or our Extreme Adventure T-shirt. We look forward to seeing Aaron’s family, friends, and co-workers each year. Last year was extra special because Aaron and Linda’s oldest daughter was able to donate blood for the first time ever!

This Month’s LifePoints Lift Partner Agency

It’s First Responders Month at CBCO! Instead of a LifePoints Lift partner agency, we’re honoring our first responders in our community.

Why Donate with CBCO?
