SPRINGFIELD, Mo.– Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is significantly short on most blood types and approaching emergency levels.

Community Blood Center of the Ozarks provides blood for many patients at more than 40 hospitals in Southwest Missouri, Northwest Arkansas and Southeast Kansas.

CBCO wants to have blood reserves to be around a three day supply for all blood types. Currently, they are under that three-day mark on type O negative, A negative and A positive blood.

Donors are urged to go give blood during the week of August 5- 11. Participants will receive a free “Super Hero” t-shirt.
