Lake Regional Health System is hosting a blood drive for Community Blood Center of the Ozarks from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, June 12, at 54 Hospital Drive, Osage Beach.
A code yellow alert for all negative blood types has been issued. That means there is less than a two day supply of these types on hospital shelves.
It takes over 275 donations every day to meet the needs of the 38 area hospitals that use CBCO products.
CBCO needs your help to meet the growing need for blood in the Ozarks.
Eligibility requirements include weighing at least 110 pounds, being in general good health and present required ID.
