On Thursday, September 20th, 6 FCCLA members traveled to Mtn. Grove to a blood drive workshop hosted by the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks to learn the importance of blood drives. We learned how to help donors when giving blood, how to announce and get people involved, and the difference it makes to the people who need transfusions. 
Did you know? Every 5 minutes, an Ozarks area hospital patient receives a blood transfusion supplied by a CBCO donor??
