The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks will hold a blood drive from 1-5:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 18, at First Christian Church in Houston.
CBCO said severe winter weather has negatively impacted blood reserves. More than 1,000 potential donations have been lost due to the storms, according to CBCO. It takes more than 275 donations each day to meet the needs of 37 area hospitals that use CBCO products, including TCMH.
Eligibility requirements include weighing at least 110 pounds, being in general good health and present ID.
