City of Fayetteville to host blood drive Feb. 8 on Downtown Square 

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The City of Fayetteville will host a blood drive Wednesday, Feb. 8, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fayetteville’s Downtown Square. 

The blood drive is being held in partnership with the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO), which will have its “bloodmobile” on hand to collect donations.  

Blood-reserve levels dropped sharply during the recent winter storms, according to CBCO. More than 400 donations were lost due to blood drive cancellations and donor center closures. CBCO is the exclusive provider of blood and plasma to all Northwest Arkansas area hospitals.  

Donors will receive a free long-sleeve, quarter-zip pullover. Appointments are strongly encouraged to manage donor flow. Schedule your appointment online at  

CBCO has a QuickPass system that saves time for donors by allowing them to start the registration process before arriving. To access QuickPass and complete health history questions online the day of the blood drive, go to
