December 2020 – January 2021

Here’s what’s going on at Community Blood Center of the Ozarks during December 2020 and January 2021, Lifesavers!

Give blood. Win a car.

We’re so excited to announce our first-ever DRIVE 2 SAVE LIVES Blood Drive! Donate blood at any CBCO donor center or mobile blood drive during December 2020 – January 2021 and your name will go into a drawing. One lucky donor will drive away in a 2020 Nissan Kicks provided by Youngblood Kia Nissan in Springfield, Missouri. For more information about DRIVE 2 SAVE LIVES, please click HERE.

Kick-off event for Drive 2 Save Lives happens Monday, November 30, 2020 at Youngblood Auto. Our Blood Vessel will be there from noon until 6:00 p.m. One donor from this event will be our very first finalist in the drawing to win the 2020 Nissan Kicks. Make your appointment by clicking HERE.

Current Gift for Donors

We want you to GET YOUR KICKS when you donate blood at any CBCO donor center or mobile blood drive during December 2020 and January 2021. All successful donors at CBCO’s four donor centers and mobile blood drives will receive a fun long-sleeved T-shirt (while supplies last).

Miracle of Giving

Our annual Miracle of Giving event takes place this year on December 24 and December 31 at our four donor centers. In addition to receiving our exclusive long-sleeved T-shirt (while supplies last) and an entry in the Drive 2 Save Lives car giveaway, donors will receive a brand new mug design and a $5 fuel card.

December & January LifePoints Lift Partner Agencies

December is Salvation Army month at CBCO! If you’d like to give your CBCO LifePoints rewards to the Salvation Army, we’ll convert those LifePoints to cash and send it their way to be used to help further their mission. Want to learn more about this organization? Click HERE.

During January, we take a break from teaming with a LifePoints Lift partner agency because January is National Volunteer Blood Donor Month!
