Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is the exclusive provider of blood, platelets, and plasma to all local hospitals — including hospitals in northwest Arkansas. Blood supplies are at critically low levels due to drive cancellations and lower donor turnout due to the pandemic.
Just in the Fayetteville area in 2019, CBCO provided more than 5,000 blood products to Fayetteville hospitals while only receiving 1,500 blood donations in the Fayetteville community. This means other communities had to step up and donate to help support hospital usage and patient needs.
Members of the Fayetteville community have come together to hold the FAYETTEVILLE CARES BLOOD DRIVE to help make sure local patients have access to the lifesaving blood products they need.
