CBCO’s 27th annual Miracle of Giving Blood Drive takes place December 23, 2021 and December 30, 2021 at all four of CBCO’s donor centers. (NOTE: Our Joplin, Springdale, and Bentonville centers will close early both days of this event.) Donors at our Miracle of Giving Blood Drive will receive (while supplies last):
- A free long-sleeved shirt to let everyone know that you’re proud to help patients at 44 hospitals in southwest Missouri, northwest Arkansas, and southeast Kansas
- An exclusive new CBCO campfire mug
- A $10 fuel card
- And your name will go into a drawing to win $1,000 in plane fare, train fare, or gas in our Planes, Trains, and Automobiles promotion, with one lucky donor per week winning the grand prize! Click HERE to learn more about our Planes, Trains, and Automobiles promotion.
The need for blood does not 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!

Save Time at the Blood Drive
On the day you plan to give blood, you may go to our website to use QuickPass to answer your health history questions. This may be done using a computer, tablet, or smartphone. When you have answered all of the questions, you will be prompted to either print the bar code or email the bar code to yourself. NOTE: The email option is currently unavailable. If you choose to use QuickPass, you’ll need to take a screenshot of the bar code on your phone to show us when you arrive at the blood drive. Bring the bar code with you so we can access your answers. Since you have already answered your questions, you may skip registration when you arrive at the blood drive. Make a miracle happen by donating during CBCO’s Miracle of Giving Blood Drive!
