Help save the lives of local patients by donating blood this summer

 


Blood donors will receive a trendy “Summer Vibes” T-shirt and free admission to their choice of Science Museum Oklahoma in Oklahoma City (one entry) or Safari Joe’s H2O Water & Adventure Park in Tulsa (two entries) at one of the following drives:

• Value Added Products, 2101 College Blvd. Alva; Friday, May 24, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

• Walmart Alva, 914 E. Oklahoma Blvd. Alva; Friday, May 24, 3–5:30 p.m.

• Waynoka High School, 116 Main St., Waynoka; Thursday, May 30, 3–7 p.m.

“Summer is a particularly challenging time for the blood supply,” said John Armitage, MD, Oklahoma Blood Institute president and CEO. “People go out of town and are busy with activities, and get out of their normal routine of giving blood. We encourage healthy adults to spare just an hour of their time to save the lives of their neighbors.”

As a non-profit blood center, Oklahoma Blood Institute’s generous donors provide every drop of blood needed for patients in more than 160 hospitals, medical facilities, and air ambulances statewide. Appointments are not required but can be made by calling Greg at 479-652-2362 or visiting obi.org.
