To keep the blood supply strong through the summer months, Oklahoma Blood Institute needs Stillwater and Yale residents to make donation a priority. An All-American blood drive sponsored by Chick-Fil-A and Yale Fire and Police will occur at Chick-Fil-A, 600 East Hall of Fame, Friday, June 21st, from 3pm to 7pm and Yale Fire and Police, 900 E. Erie, Saturday, June 22nd, from 10am to 2pm.
Two tickets to an Oklahoma City Dodgers baseball game will be awarded to every person who gives blood.
Each donor will also receive their choice of a voucher for one free entry to Science Museum Oklahoma or for two free entries to Safari Joe’s H20 Water and Adventure Park and a “Summer Vibes” T-shirt.
Anyone, age 16 and older* and, generally in good health, can donate blood.
“The summer months, in addition to the recent severe flooding and upcoming Independence Day holiday, put incredible stress on the blood supply for patients in our state,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “We are grateful for all donors who can take time before and during the holiday week to help Oklahomans who will need blood throughout the summer.”
Oklahoma Blood Institute’s volunteer donors provide every drop of blood needed by patients in more than 160 hospitals, medical facilities and air ambulances across Oklahoma.
To schedule an appointment to donate blood at this drive, call 1-877-340-8777, or visit www.obi.org.
