Give More…

Birthdays. Graduations. Holidays. Memories.
All made possible by generous blood donors.

Did you know that one out of every seven hospital patients will require a lifesaving blood transfusion? Or that here in the Ozarks, someone’s friend, family member, co-worker, neighbor or loved one needs blood every seven minutes?

One blood donation can help up to three patients right here in our communities.

When you donate blood with the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks, you provide the essential medicine that helps real people in our community overcome their injuries or illnesses and experience more of what life has to offer.

More time. More adventures. More hugs. More of what makes them happy.

Throughout February and March, we’ll be sharing some more stories about how blood donations have helped people here in southwest Missouri, northwest Arkansas and southeast Kansas. But we also want to give credit to the selfless individuals who donate their time and blood to give the gift of life to our communities. So, to say thank you…

Free For All Donors!

Give blood at any Community Blood Center of the Ozarks mobile drive or donor center between February 1 and March 31, 2022, and you’ll receive a limited-edition, quarter-zip CBCO pullover for your role in saving the lives of people in our communities.

Pullovers/size options available while supplies last.
