The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks will host a blood drive from 11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Saturday, July 9, at Walmart in Houston.

All donors will be entered for the chance to win $25 gas cards or free gas for the year.

Current blood inventories at CBCO include at least a three-day supply for most blood types. Although levels are adequate, it takes around 275 donations per day to meet the needs of the 37 hospitals that use CBCO products.

Eligibility requirements include weighing at least 110 pounds, being in general good health and present ID.
