Woodward, Okla. —
The Woodward Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a blood drive Monday (July 7) from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Oklahoma Blood Institute Bloodmobile, which will be at Walgreens.
Each donor will also receive two tickets to the Oklahoma City Zoo and a “Feel Cool” t-shirt.
Anyone who is healthy and 16 or older is eligible to donate.
“Everyone knows someone who’s needed blood. It impacts all ages of people and often arises unexpectedly as a result of accident or illness,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO. “Whether we know them or not, there are people now who are counting on us to give.”
Patients who receive blood exclusively from OBI donors include those in Woodward Regional Hospital.
Appointments are not necessary, but can be made by calling 877-340-8777 or visiting www.obi.org.
