City of Fayetteville to host blood drive Sept. 21 on Downtown Square
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.—The City of Fayetteville will host a blood drive Wednesday, Sept. 21, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fayetteville’s Downtown Square.
The blood drive is being held in partnership with the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO), which will have its “bloodmobile” on hand to collect donations.
Donors will receive free a T-shirt and two tickets to Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, Mo. Appointments are strongly encouraged to manage donor flow. Schedule your appointment online at https://donate.cbco.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/129299.
CBCO is the exclusive provider of blood and plasma to all Northwest Arkansas area hospitals. Local donors are needed to continue to provide for local patients.
CBCO has a QuickPass system that saves 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 https://www.cbco.org/quickpass.
