Although Christmas is officially over, the giving continues in the Four States. Officials at the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks continued their Miracle of Giving Blood Drive Campaign today. The drive will last until the end of the month. Donations made during the drive will help to ensure an adequate blood supply now through New Year`s weekend. Participants in the blood drive will receive free recognition gifts. If you would like to participate in the drive, the Community Blood Center in Joplin is open Mondays through Wednesday from 11:00 am until 6:00 pm, and Thursdays from 11:00 am until 7:00 pm. Special hours will be observed on New Year`s Eve from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm.
