May is Habitat For Humanity month at CBCO
May 1 - May 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 Habitat For Humanity with your LifePoints which allows the organization to work toward its mission to help homeowners achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
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 May. But May is our time to share information about Habitat For Humanity.
Habitat For Humanity – Springfield, MO
Habitat For Humanity believes every person in Springfield and the surrounding area deserves a safe and affordable place to live. As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, they have an impact on more than 110 households a year. Since 1988, they have either built or renovated more than 570 homes, providing shelter for more than 1,100 men, women, and children from Greene, Christian, and Webster Counties. Habitat For Humanity – Springfield helps people gain strength, stability and independence through housing, including home construction, rehabilitation, and repairs, and by increasing access to improved shelter through products and programs. They are a United Way of the Ozarks partner agency.
Community Blood Center of the Ozarks
Founded in 1995, CBCO has grown to serve 40 counties in three states and is the sole supplier of blood and blood products to more than hospitals in southwest Missouri, northwest Arkansas, and southeast Kansas, including all children’s and veterans hospitals.
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.
