HEAVENER – The Oklahoma Blood Institute is hosting a blood drive in Heavener Thursday, from noon to 6 p.m. at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.
Individuals ages 16 and up are urged to give blood. Appointments are needed to participate.
Donors will receive a free t-shirt in OSU orange or OU crimson. Oklahoma Blood Institute is a local, non-profit blood supplier, supporting the inventory for patients in more than 160 hospitals, medical facilities and air ambulances statewide.
All donations will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies to identify potential convalescent plasma donors. Masks are required for all donors and will be provided if needed.
Blood donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives. Appointments can be made by calling (479) 652-2362 or visiting obi.org. More information on Oklahoma Blood Institute can be found at obi.org.
