Oklahoma Blood Institute is kicking off football season with this season’s new “Win from Within” Bedlam t-shirts!
Sallisaw Walmart will host a blood drive with the Oklahoma Blood Institute from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sept. 9 on the bloodmobile.
All donors will receive a free t-shirt in their choice of OU crimson or OSU orange.
Anyone who is healthy and 16 years old* or older can make a life-saving difference for their fellow Oklahomans by giving blood.
“Whether you bleed crimson or orange, our love of football runs deep here in Oklahoma,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute, “But saving the lives of our neighbors and friends through blood donation takes the definition of winning to a new level.”
Health screenings and Donor Rewards points, redeemable for gift cards and apparel in Oklahoma Blood Institute’s online store, are provided to donors. If donors opt not to take the t-shirt, funds will be given to Global Blood Fund, a charity organization helping to procure much-needed blood center supplies in developing countries.
Appointments to give blood are not required but can be made by visiting obi.org or calling Greg at 479-652-2362.
* 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.
