Movie Mania Blood Drive

Play a leading role in helping to save the lives of patients in the Ozarks at our Movie Mania Blood Drive scheduled for:

  • Wednesday, July 1, 2020 and Thursday, July 2, 2020 at all four CBCO donor centers

  • Schedule your appointment by clicking HERE to choose a CBCO donor center or by calling 417-227-5006.

Donors will receive a FandangoNOW movie voucher for a free online movie rental (retail value $5.99) and a CBCO Throwback T-shirt (while supplies last).

We currently have a critical need for all blood types. 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.”
