City to host blood drive Sept. 20 on the square

The city of Fayetteville will host a blood drive in partnership with Community Blood Center of the Ozarks on the Fayetteville square today (Sept. 20.)

The event kicks off at 9 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m. via the CBCO’s bloodmobile, which will be on hand to collect donations.

Donors will receive a free t-shirt, along with two free tickets to the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, Missouri.

Appointments are recommended, but not required.

In addition, CBCO has a QuickPass system intended to save time for donors by allowing them to start the registration process before arriving. To access QuickPass and complete health history questions online the day of the blood drive, go to
