It’s Thanks-for-Giving!

Wednesday, November 23

Only at Community Blood Center of the Ozarks donor centers!

Thanksgiving is a time for families and friends to gather and count their blessings, but there are countless loved ones across the Ozarks who’ll miss those holiday celebrations while spending time in area hospitals.

With a timely blood donation, you could help up to three of these patients — and win a new iPhone 14!

Give blood, plasma or platelets at a Community Blood Center of the Ozarks donor center during our annual Thanks-for-Giving event on Wednesday, November 23. You will be automatically entered into a drawing for an all-new, unlocked 128GB midnight iPhone 14 — a grand prize valued at $829!

Free T-Shirt for Donors!

Community Blood Center of the Ozarks blood donors will receive this Chiefs T-shirt when giving blood between October 1 and November 30, 2022.

Thanksgiving Day isn’t just a time for family and friends… it’s also a time for football! To celebrate, all Thanks-for-Giving donors will receive a free Kansas City Chiefs T-shirt, while supplies last.

While all Thanks-for-Giving donors will be automatically entered to win the iPhone 14, donors can also fill out an entry form for a chance to win two tickets and a parking pass to Kansas City’s January 1, 2023, game against Denver — a nearly $700 value!

Information about how to enter the Chiefs ticket/parking pass drawing can be found at the donor centers on November 23.

Thank you to our Thanks-for-Giving event sponsor!
