Miracle of Giving Blood Drive 2016
CBCO’s Miracle of Giving Blood Drive 2016 takes place December 12 – 31, 2016, at all 4 of our donor centers and all mobile blood drives.
Participants in our Miracle of Giving Blood Drive 2016 will receive this free T-shirt to let everyone know that you’re proud to save lives in the Ozarks.
The need for blood doesn’t take a holiday… neither does the need for blood donors. That’s why CBCO is looking for dedicated blood donors to participate in Miracle of Giving. We know that life gets hectic over the holidays, but what better break from the holiday rush than to lie back and know you are helping save a life?
Because blood is perishable (it has a 42-day shelf life), it is important that we maintain adequate reserves at all times. The holidays present a special challenge, not only because of competing activities during the season, but also because schools are out of session. High school and college age donors give more than 1/3 of the blood supply used in our community. So you are needed even more during the long holiday season!
