Columbia College is hosting a blood drive for Community Blood Center of the Ozarks on Tuesday, Feb. 19. It will be held from 2:30-5:30 p.m. at 900 College Blvd. in Osage Beach.
With a three day supply of most blood types on hand, inventories were considered adequate at the time of the press release for this blood drive.
But it takes over 275 donations every day to meet the needs of the 38 area hospitals that use CBCO products. Donations are needed on an ongoing basis to keep supplies at an adequate level.
