OCCC Blood Drive

None
10 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesday April 15

Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) and Oklahoma City Community College are teaming up to save the lives of those in local hospitals.  A blood drive will be held at the general dining area, Tuesday, April 15, and Wednesday, April 16, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Anyone who is healthy and 16 years* or older is urged to attend and donate.

 

Each donor will receive a “FEEL BOLD” T-shirt, free health screenings and Donor Rewards Points. Blood donors can choose to forgo the T-shirt. Then, funds designated for this item will be contributed to Global Blood Fund, a nonprofit that supports struggling blood centers abroad.

 

Donors with OBI provide every drop of blood needed by patients in all metro-Oklahoma City area hospitals and some 140 other medical facilities across the state. One in every seven people entering a hospital will need blood. There is no substitute for human blood, and it has a limited time for use.  That is why some 600 donors are needed each day, according to OBI.

 

Of those eligible to donate blood in the U.S., only about ten percent actually do. Each donation can save as many as three lives. Donations can be made every 56 days.

Appointment to donate are not required but can be made by calling 877-340-8777 or visitingobi.org.
