Blood Need Increases in Summer

As the summer travel season gets underway, the need for blood supply continues to grow. The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks reports that blood transfusions in area hospitals are at high levels, but the number of blood drives are down. Chris Pilgrim with CBCO encourages all eligible donors to give.

CBCO donors provide all the blood for patients at Mercy – Lebanon as well as dozens of other hospitals across the Ozarks. Lebanon area residents will have the opportunity to donate at a Lebanon Community Blood Drive at the Lebanon Laclede County Library on June 16th from 12:30 to 6. All participants will be entered to win a prize package full of outdoor summer fun, including a gas griddle, projection television, screen, a fire pit, and assorted family games. The prize pack is valued at over $1,200.00. Successful donors will also receive a key lime-colored T-shirt that invites others to “Make S’more Memories” by donating blood. Appointments are strongly encouraged for this blood drive but are not necessary. Make an appointment to give at cbco.org forward slash donate dash blood.
