This event is sponsored by Adam Swenka Home Loan Group, iHeart Radio, Springfield-Greene County Health Department. and two of the 40+ local hospitals that rely exclusively on Community Blood Center of the Ozarks for the blood products their patients need — CoxHealth and Mercy.
“With a nation nearly overcome with crisis – a pandemic, rioting, and 40 million lost jobs – it is hard to know what one person can do to make a difference. Give blood. You can make a difference that could help save lives,” says Steve Edwards, president and CEO of CoxHealth. “The ready availability of blood is vital to our ability to care for our loved ones. We are grateful for CBCO. They are a great partner, and their work is vital.”
“Summer is typically a time we see traumatic injuries, as people head outside to enjoy the Ozarks,” said Craig McCoy, president of Mercy Springfield Communities. “It could be your family member who suddenly needs a transfusion to save their life. We have to have the blood supply on hand so we can react quickly. We know CBCO is taking all the appropriate precautions to keep donors safe. Now is a great time to spend just a few minutes serving your community by donating blood.”
“So many people ask me on a regular basis what they can do to help our community during this global pandemic. Blood donation is a safe and impactful way to do your part to combat COVID-19,” said Springfield-Greene County Health Department Director Clay Goddard. “Rigorous safety measures and social distancing practices mean donation is safe and easy for donors and recipients. I would encourage everyone to visit CBCO and give.”
While you’re donating blood, be sure to take a selfie and then share it on social media by tagging @OzarksBlood and using our hashtag #redcellfie.
