"Blood donors that commit themselves to a lifetime of giving know that they are responsible for affecting thousands of lives," CBCO Executive Director Don Thomson said. "They give with no expectation of recognition, but they certainly deserve to be recognized. I congratulate these outstanding advocates for the blood program here in the Ozarks."

It takes 250 donations each day to meet patient needs at thirty-eight area hospitals that rely solely on products from CBCO donors. For more information on the blood program here in the Ozarks, or to learn how easy it is to save lives, call 1-800-280-5337 or log on to www.cbco.org.
