The Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) is looking for local heroes who are strong, bold, and fearless to help save the lives of their fellow Oklahomans.
The OBI will hold a blood drive with NHS Sequoyah (Sequoyah Memorial Hospital) from 11 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday.
Each blood donor will receive their choice of t-shirt in “Strong” olive, “Bold” maroon, or “Fearless” teal. Healthy adults, age sixteen and up, are encouraged to give blood.*
Donors also receive free health screenings and Donor Rewards points, redeemable at Oklahoma Blood Institute’s online store. If donors opt not to take the t-shirt, Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a monetary donation to Global Blood Fund for blood center assistance in developing countries.
Appointments are not required but can be made by calling Greg at 479-652-2362 or visiting obi.org.
