Gore’s first responders are looking for citizens to support their efforts through blood donation with Oklahoma Blood Institute. Those who give at the Boots and Badges blood drive on Monday, August 12, will provide blood needed to save local lives, such as those that firefighters and law enforcement officers rescue.
Anyone 16 years or older* is urged to stop by Gore United Methodist Church between 12:15 p.m. and 6 p.m. All donors will receive special-edition Boots and Badges t-shirt and a voucher for free admission to their choice of Frontier City, Science Museum Oklahoma or Safari Joe’s H2O Water and Adventure Park in Tulsa.
“Gore’s first responders see the daily need for blood first-hand when the people they rescue require life-saving treatment,” said John Armitage, M.D., President and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “We can’t say enough about the service our police officers and firefighters provide, and we owe it to them to do our part in making sure blood is available in emergency situations.”
Appointments for the blood drive may be made by calling or texting Greg at 479-652-2362 or visiting obi.org.
