Grow Give Blood Drive
July 11 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until July 15, 2022
Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO), the sole supplier of blood, platelets, and plasma to patients at 44 area healthcare facilities, urges donors to help increase the summer blood supply during the Grow Give Blood Drive at the Springfield Donor Center on West Planview Road, starting Monday, July 11.
During the week-long event, donors will get to choose one free plant from a variety of botanicals, including succulents to hanging baskets, thanks to a generous donation from a local greenhouse. The Grow Give Blood Drive will start Monday, July 11 and continue through Sunday, July 17, or while supplies last. Donors will also receive a free “Let’s Save A Life” T-shirt and will be automatically entered into a weekly mystery prize drawing, valued at $200 and a chance to win the mystery grand prize, valued at $5000.
“This summer has proven to be more challenging than even a typical summer,” said Michelle Teter, Media Relations Representative for CBCO.
“We are fortunate to have great community partners who understand the importance of having a strong, local blood supply and give generously to provide our donors with some fun incentives.” Teter points out that many are alive today because of the kind acts of strangers.
“We hope these plants serve as a reminder of the donor’s generous gift of life and the impact they’ve had on the lives of their friends, family and neighbors.”
Appointments are strongly encouraged to help reduce wait time, but walk-ins are welcome. To schedule your appointment call 417-227-5006 or go to https://www.cbco.org/donate-blood/.
It takes around two hundred blood donations each day to serve the patients at the 44 area Ozark hospitals. On behalf of local hospital patients, Community Blood Center of the Ozarks thanks blood donors from across the region for giving life to your community.
