Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO) invites you to experience the joy of giving life to your community by participating in the Miracle of Giving Blood Drive, December 10 through January 6 at all CBCO blood drives and donor centers across the Ozarks.

The need for a steady supply of blood available for patients at 44 area hospitals never goes away. Many times around the holidays, shortages can occur due to the frantic nature of the season.


The Miracle of Giving Blood Drive was created to help offset potential shortages and to celebrate the lifesaving results that occur when a person gives their incredible gift for others. 


“In less than an hour, you can give someone a chance at another holiday,” CBCO Executive Director Anthony Roberts said.  “The joy of the season lies in giving to others and there is no better gift than a blood donation.”


All participants at any CBCO blood drive during the Miracle of Giving event will receive a special long sleeve shirt, identifying you as a real lifesaver.  There are other opportunities for great incentives as well for donors who give in CBCO Donor Centers.  Please check website for deals on additional promotional programs.
