Wednesday, May 6, 2020 only at our Springfield Donor Center (until further notice)
Schedule your appointment by clicking HERE or by calling 417-227-5006.
Beginning Wednesday, May 6, blood donors at the Springfield Donor Center will receive a bright red “Healthy Habit” T-shirt and a voucher good for a free FandangoNOW stay-at-home premium movie rental (a $5.99 retail value). The movie vouchers will be offered for a limited time, so schedule that donation soon.
During the stay-at-home order of the pandemic, hospitals postponed most surgeries. Hospitals are now ramping back up, which means more surgeries and a bigger need for blood. Won’t you help make a difference by donating at this crucial time?
Appointments are strongly suggested so that social distancing guidelines can be maintained. Scroll down for more info.
CBCO, the exclusive provider of blood at all local hospitals, reports that reserves of all blood types are at lower than optimal levels. There is less than a three-day supply of all types along with more critical shortages of type A positive, A negative and B negative blood. Eligible donors are strongly urged to help keep supplies safe by giving this week if possible.
“We saw an incredible response from donors at our fixed site locations during the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, but those donations have now slowed significantly,” CBCO Executive Director Anthony Roberts said. “Donors that gave during those first days of the shutdown are now becoming eligible again. As hospitals ramp up their services, blood usage is rising. We need to see a strong donor response this month from both our fixed sites and mobile blood drives that are still scheduled. Please help if you can and please give to the sole local provider of blood in the region.”

When will I receive my FandangoNOW movie voucher? We will mail the voucher to you by the end of May.

Which movie theaters will accept my Fandango promotional code? This voucher is for FandangoNOW, which lets you stream a movie from home. No movie theater required.

Can I donate on a different day and still get the free Fandango movie ticket? Sorry, but this promotion is for donations made at our Springfield Donor Center beginning May 6, 2020 for a limited time only.
Will I still get the free flick if I donate at a mobile blood drive instead? This promotion is only for donors at Springfield Donor Center.
