Community Blood Center of the Ozarks to host blood drive June 17

The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks will host a blood drive on Wednesday, June 17 in the parking lot of KUAF, located at 9 S. School Avenue in Fayetteville.

Officials say that due to COVID-19, blood levels are at a critically low level due to the cancellations of many local drives recently.

The Fayetteville drive will take place from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. All donors who participate in the event will receive a CBCO throwback t-shirt, and a $5 gift card (while supplies last).

Masks are required for donors and staff. Appointments are strongly encouraged.
