Give blood—save lives
Did you know there is no substitute for human blood? Every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood, yet only 3 in 100 Americans donate.
Nearly 1 in 5 people say that the main reason for not donating blood is that they’ve never thought about it. Consider it—when you give blood, it makes a difference. With your selfless gift, you can save up to 3 lives.
Each day, it takes 275 blood donations to meet the needs of patients in the 36 hospitals supplied by Community Blood Center of the Ozarks (CBCO). Freeman regularly conducts blood drives in conjunction with CBCO. If you’d like to attend, please check our calendar of events.
Donating blood is safe and takes less than an hour. People who are 17 or older, weigh at least 110 pounds, and have not given blood in the past 8 weeks are encouraged to give blood. You may donate blood every 8 weeks, up to 6 times a year.
Let others live through you—give blood.
