There will be a blood donation opportunity next week in Waynesville. The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks will be seeking blood donations next Wednesday, January 5th, from 10 a-m to 3 p-m, in the parking lot of Waynesville Medical Plaza, 1000 G-W Lane Street. Successful donors will receive a soft and warm CBCO Hoodie, while supplies last, perfect for the cold days ahead. Donors will be able to take the 56-Day Challenge to have a chance to win a one-thousand-dollar VISA gift card. Masks are required for this drive. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. Appointments are strongly encouraged for this blood drive but are not necessary. Make an appointment to give at CBCO donors provide all the blood for patients at dozens of healthcare facilities across the Ozarks.
