The blood drive will run from noon-6 p.m. in the Magnolia, Dogwood and Redbud conference rooms at Cox Medical Center Branson, 525 Branson Landing Blvd.

Donors to Community Blood Center of the Ozarks provide all of the blood for patients at 38 area hospitals, including Cox Medical Center Branson.

Every five minutes on average, a transfusion takes place and it takes approximately 250 donations each day to meet the area’s blood needs.

Each donation will be awarded LifePoints as part of Community Blood Center of the Ozarks’ donor reward program. LifePoints may be redeemed online for a variety of gift cards or points may be assigned to other meaningful causes or charities. More information on the LifePoints donor rewards program may be found at www.cbco.org.

To be eligible to give blood, donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health and present a valid photo ID. Anyone planning to give is encouraged to eat well and drink plenty of fluids prior to the blood drive.
