Oklahoma Blood Institute needs blood donors to save local lives this May.
Healthy adults, age 16 and older, can give blood at one of the following drives:
Yukon Middle School, Tuesday, May 2, at 7th/8th Grade Pit Area, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Contact Jenah Hamilton at 405-354-5274 X1710.
Canadian Valley Technology Center, Czech Hall Campus, Friday, May 5, in Classroom 1115, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Donors will receive a free “Hero” t-shirt in their choice of spring color: blue, purple or green.
“Each blood donation saves as many as three lives,” said John Armitage, M.D., Oklahoma Blood Institute president and CEO. “Many patients - especially those battling cancer or trauma injuries - need multiple transfusions in a short period of time. Donors are needed every day, since there is no substitute for blood, and it has a very limited time for use.” [Read More]
