Blood Drive Is Tuesday at Hospital


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.

*16-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds and provide signed parental permission; 17-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds; 18+ year olds must weigh at least 110 pounds.
