Share the Love

None
10 a.m.-3 p.m., Thursday February 13

Oklahoma City-area residents are urged to ‘share the love’ this Valentine’s week by donating blood with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) at one of these locations. 

 

·        Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC), Wednesday, Feb. 12, and Thursday, Feb. 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., general dining area

 

·        Quail Spring Mall, Saturday, Feb. 15, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., lower level southeast entrance

 

Each donor at OCCC will receive a “Feel Bold” t-shirt, while donors at Quail Springs Mall will be offered a hot/cold gel pack.  Donors at both drives will get free health screenings and Donor Rewards Points, redeemable online for gift certificates and merchandise.

 

Blood donors can choose to forgo the t-shirt or gel pack.  Then, funds designated for these items will be directed to Global Blood Fund (GBF), a charity whose mission is to make safe blood available in the world’s poorest countries.

 

“The need for blood is constant. It’s not affected by the seasons or the thermostat,” said John Armitage, M.D., Oklahoma Blood Institute president and CEO.  “We appreciate those in our community who show brotherly love by giving blood to literally save someone’s life.”

 

Although all blood types are needed to maintain OBI’s typical three-day supply, those with O-negative type blood are especially encouraged to donate. According to the American Association of Blood Banks, those with O-negative blood type make up only nine percent of the national population. However, O-negative blood can be used by anyone in an emergency situation, regardless of their type.

 

Donors with Oklahoma Blood Institute provide every drop of blood needed by patients in all Oklahoma City metro area hospitals and 140 others across the state. 

 

Blood donations can be made every 56 days. For more information or to make an appointment, call 877-340-8777 or visitwww.obi.org.
