In less than an hour, you can save the lives of three people.
Donate blood today.
Every day, hospital patients throughout the Ozarks need around 200 pints of blood as they undergo surgeries, battle illnesses and recover from catastrophic injuries. This lifesaving and essential medicine can not be manufactured.
It has to be donated from people like you.
Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is the sole provider of blood, platelets and plasma to over 40 hospitals in southwest Missouri, northwest Arkansas and southeast Kansas. While other organizations hold blood drives in the area, the blood they collect does not stay in the area. That’s why it’s so important to donate with your LOCAL blood bank.
When you donate with CBCO, you give life to your community.
Most donations take less than an hour and each can save the lives of three people right here in the Ozarks. With mobile drives throughout the region, it’s easy to find a way to help your friends and neighbors. And if that wasn’t enough, we also offer great incentives for donors. Local patients are counting on you. Will you give?
