Join us for a blood drive Feb. 28 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Arvest branch in Cassville, Mo. Arvest Bank is pleased to partner with the American Red Cross to host our bi-monthly blood drive at 503 Main St., Cassville. You can set an appointment on the American Red Cross* website or just drop in.

After severe winter weather caused hundreds of blood drive cancellations last month, the American Red Cross needs donors of all types to help restock the shelves, especially those with type O negative, O positive, A negative or B negative blood. The weather cancellations caused the equivalent of the American Red Cross having shut down its national operations for more than three full days in just a six-week period.

Donated blood can be used to treat cancer patients, trauma victims, organ transplant recipients, premature babies with complications, sickle cell disease patients and others. Your donation could help save up to three lives right here in our community.

What are the benefits of donating blood?

  • It feels great to donate!
  • You get free juice and delicious cookies.
  • It's something you can spare – most people have blood to spare, yet there is still not enough to go around.
  • You will help ensure blood is on the shelf when needed – most people don't think they'll ever need blood but many do.
  • You will be someone's hero – in fact, you could help save more than one life with just one donation.

Mark your calendars for more blood drives at the Arvest Bank in Cassville on April 25, June 27, Aug. 29, Oct. 24 and Dec. 26.
