Blood drive scheduled July 24 in Eureka Springs

Friday, July 19, 2019

Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO) reports less than a three-day supply of type A Positive and O negative blood.  CBCO is the sole local provider of blood for patients at more than 40 area hospitals in southwest Missouri, northwest Arkansas and southeast Kansas. Sick and injured hospital patients depend on CBCO donors to provide the lifesaving blood they need.

A blood drive will be held from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 24, at Inn of the Ozarks on Highway 62 West in Eureka Springs.

Each donation will be awarded LifePoints as a part of CBCO’s donor rewards program.  LifePoints may be redeemed online for a variety of gift cards, or points may be assigned to other meaningful causes or charities. More information on the LifePoints donor rewards program may be found at

To be eligible to give blood, you must weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, and present a valid photo ID. For more information, visit, or call 1-800-280-5337.
