Oklahoma Blood Institute will hold a blood drive at Brushy Elementary School from 1:30 to 6 p.m. Dec. 13.
Each blood donor will receive a free, limited edition, long-sleeved holiday-themed t-shirt. Each student who brings a donor to donate will receive a “Feel Like a Superhero” Goofy Pen.
“The gift of blood donation is one that offers hope, healing, and comfort to local patients and their loved ones,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “The cost- just one hour of your time- is certainly less than other gifts most of us will give this season. But there’s nothing that has a greater impact.”
Donors also receive health screenings and Donor Rewards points, redeemable at Oklahoma Blood Institute’s online store.
Appointments are not required but can be made by calling 479-652-2362 or visiting obi.org.
