“Miracle of Giving Blood” Drive This Wednesday, December 18
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— The best part of the holiday season is the gifts we give to others. You can give the gift of life by donating blood this Wednesday, December 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fayetteville’s Downtown Square. The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO) is offering a free long-sleeved t-shirt for all participants. The drive is hosted by the City of Fayetteville.
Every two seconds someone needs blood, so mark your calendar and come donate. When you give blood, you are literally helping hospitals save lives; there is no easier way to save a life.
The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks has a QuickPass system that lets you start the registration process before you ever arrive at the blood drive. With QuickPass you can go online using your own computer, smartphone, or tablet to answer the required health history questions on the day of the blood drive.
This allows you to skip registration when you arrive at the blood drive and move on to the next step rather than waiting your turn to answer the health history questions.
The QuickPass system will walk you through each question with photos and text. When you’re finished, you’ll receive a unique bar code that you’ll need to take with you to the blood drive. You’ll have the option to print the bar code or e-mail it to yourself. You must present the bar code at the blood drive for your completed questionnaire to be retrieved. If you are unable to complete your questionnaire prior to arriving at the blood drive, a touch-screen tablet will be provided at donor registration.
