The city of Fayetteville will host a blood drive in partnership with Community Blood Center of the Ozarks on the Fayetteville square this week.

The drive will be held from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 7 on the downtown square.

CBCO’s bloodmobile mobile collection center will be parked on the square to collect donations. The organization is the sole provider of blood and plasma to the 44 area healthcare facilities. Local donors are needed to continue to provide for local patients. 

Donors will receive a free blanket while supplies last.

Appointments are recommended, but not required. To schedule, visit this website.

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
