Boots & Badges Blood Drives

Support your local first responders in the effort to save lives in your community!

Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is teaming up with police departments, fire departments and emergency medical service providers across the Ozarks for special Boots & Badges Blood Drives this summer! These fun, community-centered events feature friendly competitions between the local police officers, firefighters and EMTs to see which group of lifesavers can recruit the most blood donors.

All donors who answer the call to save lives can vote for their favorite agency, and the one with the most votes will be declared the winner. Of course, the real winners are local patients — just one blood donation can save three lives! Did we mention the exclusive rewards for all blood donors?
