Unite Springfield Blood Drive

Give the gift of life in honor of those who lost theirs on March 15, 2020 at a tragic shooting at a Kum & Go store in Springfield, Missouri.


Six months ago, Springfield responded to a tragedy by coming together as one united community. On September 15, 16, and 17, we invite you to share a moment of remembrance and community strength by making a blood donation at CBCO.

For every blood donation received, $5 will go to Community Foundation of the Ozarks – 3/15 Relief Fund.


All donors will receive an exclusive Unite Springfield T-shirt.
