The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is trying to get more blood donations as supplies are critically low thanks to COVID 19.

Officials say they will be hosting a drive in Springfield where you can donate and get two tickets to a 2021 Springfield Cardinals game, along with a t-shirt.

The drive runs from July 6th through the 10th at the Thomson Donor Center.

The CBCO will be hosting two local drives this month, one at the Meadowview Country Market in Tunas on July 13th and another at the Lodge of the Four Seasons on the 30th.

Overall, they are more than 8,000 donations short compared to this time last year.
