SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Blood banks and some hospitals are running low on supplies.

The Community Blood Center of the Ozarks is hoping to change that this week with its 13th annual Bleed Blue Blood Drive.

Saving lives can be fun too.

All donors will get two dugout seats to any 2020 Northwest Arkansas Naturals ball game, a t-shirt, and coupon for a free meal at Raising Cane’s.

You have until Friday to donate at CBCO’s Springdale and Bentonville locations.
