Blood drives planned in Woodward

Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) and Woodward-area residents are teaming up to save the lives of those in local hospitals.  Blood drives will be held at the following locations:

 · Woodward First Baptist Church; Tuesday, May 20; 1 p.m. o 6 p.m. This drive will be held in honor of Talon Waibel.

· Big Dan’s Steakhouse; Saturday, May 24; 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Each donor will receive 10 percent off a meal with presentation of donation sticker.

Anyone who is healthy and 16 years* or older is urged to attend and donate.

Donors with Oklahoma Blood Institute exclusively provide blood needed by all patients in Woodward Regional Hospital and some 150 other medical facilities across the state.

 Each person who donates will receive two admissions to the Oklahoma City Zoo and a “FEEL COOL” zoo-themed T-shirt.  

If preferred, a donor can forgo the T-shirt to enable support of Global Blood Fund (GBF).  For each donor who chooses this option, a contribution to GBF will be made by Oklahoma Blood Institute.  

GBF is a nonprofit that provides blood center technology and supplies to struggling blood centers around the world, so they can meet local needs through voluntary blood donation.

 All donors receive free health screenings and Donor Reward Points, redeemable online for gift cards and apparel.

 Appointments to donate are not required but can be made at 877-340-8777 or obi.org.

 

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