Three Owasso organizations and Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) are starting off the new year by saving lives and inviting area residents 16 years or older* to join by donating blood:

§ Jan 11 - Walmart, 12101 E 96th St N, in the OBI bloodmobile, 2:30-6pm
§ Jan 13 - First Assembly of God, Youth Facility Auditorium, 9341 N 129th E Ave, Noon-5 pm
§ Jan 14 – Lowe’s, 12001 E 96th St N, in the OBI bloodmobile, 11am-3pm

Blood donors will receive a free OBI ball cap, health screenings and Donor Rewards points, redeemable for merchandise in OBI’s online store.

If donors prefer, they can forgo the ball cap to support the Global Blood Fund. Oklahoma Blood Institute will redirect funds for the ball caps to this charity assisting blood centers in developing countries.

Donors with Oklahoma Blood Institute provide every drop of blood needed by patients in more than 140 Oklahoma medical facilities including Saint Francis Health System, Cancer Treatment Center, Tulsa Spine and Specialty Hospital, Oklahoma Surgical Hospital, Pinnacle Specialty Hospital, Union Pines Surgery Center and Tulsa Life Flight in the Tulsa area.

Appointments are not required but can be made by calling Oklahoma Blood Institute at 877-340-8777 or visiting obi.org.
