February & March 2021

Here’s what’s going on at Community Blood Center of the Ozarks during February and March, 2021, Lifesavers!

Because they need me, I give.

We’re focusing on the lives that YOU — our dedicated donors — have made a difference in by sharing several of their stories. You’ll see their faces on our blood drive posters, in emails letting you know about upcoming blood drives, on our website, and on our social media. Because they needed you, and you gave. Take a look by clicking HERE. You’ve helped these folks or hundreds of others, just by giving blood with CBCO.

Our donors will receive this brand new T-shirt design. What a stylish way to let the world know you care enough about others to give blood. Did you know CBCO is the sole provider of blood, platelets, and plasma to all local hospitals in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas? The list of hospitals that rely on us is available when you click HERE.

Spread The Love Blood Drive

It’s time for our second annual Spread the Love blood drive, sponsored by Justice Jewelers in Springfield, Missouri! Give blood at one of our four donor centers February 1 – 5, 2021. All donors’ names go into a drawing for a $500 gift card to Justice Jewelers. Plus you’ll get our new T-shirt design (image above).

Details will be shared as soon as we’re ready to announce this fabulous new event! Donors will be able to give blood and help many Springfield-area non-profit organizations compete to win $500 and $1000. Stay tuned here and on social media to learn more.
