Give the Gift of Life, Donate Blood on Wednesday December 16
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The next City-hosted blood drive will be held Wednesday, December 16, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO) will have their bloodmobile located on the Fayetteville Square.
Donors will receive a long-sleeved t-shirt and be entered for a chance to win a 2020 Nissan Kicks. Appointments are strongly encouraged to manage donor flow. Schedule your appointment online at https://www.cbco.org/donate-blood/ or to locate a future blood drive near you.
Masks are required for donors and staff. If you don’t have a mask, one will be provided.
CBCO is the exclusive provider of blood and plasma to all NWA area hospitals. Local donors are needed to continue to provide for local patients.
The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks has a QuickPass system that lets you start the registration process before you arrive at the blood drive. Access the QuickPass link to complete your health history questions online the day of the blood drive. The QuickPass system will save you time when you arrive at the blood drive and eliminate the need to touch CBCO tablets to complete this information.
