Greek Week Blood Drive

None
11 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday April 02

Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) invites all local area residents to donate blood this April at the upcoming Greek Week blood drives hosted by University of Central Oklahoma. The blood drive will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday, April 2 and Wednesday, April 3 at 100 N. University Drive, Nigh University Center, in the Will Rogers Room on the fourth floor.

 

By donating blood, donors can feel good about helping to save someone else’s life. As an added bonus, all blood donors will receive an OBI T-shirt, free health screenings and Donor Reward Points. However, if blood donors choose to forgo the donor appreciation item, funds designated for this item will be directed to our partnering organization, Global Blood Fund (GBF). Global Blood Fund and Oklahoma Blood Institute both share a common goal, to make blood available to those in need.

 

Of those eligible to donate blood in the U.S., only about ten percent actually do, despite the quick and beneficial donation process. Giving blood only takes about an hour and one single donation can save up to three different lives. All healthy adults, 16 years and older* are encouraged to make blood donations. Donations can be made every 56 days.

 

One in every seven people entering a hospital will need blood and every two seconds someone is in need of blood. Since there is no substitute for human blood, supplies must constantly be renewed. Although those with O-negative type blood are strongly encouraged to donate, Oklahoma Blood Institute welcomes all donor participation in the University of Central Oklahoma blood drive.

 

Oklahoma Blood Institute manages the life-saving donations from more than 209,000 individuals each year and is the ninth largest, non-profit blood center in America.  For more information or to make an appointment, contact Oklahoma Blood Institute at 877-340-8777 or visit us at www.obi.org

 

 

* 16 year olds must weigh at least 125 and provide signed parental permission, 17 year olds must weigh at least 125 pounds, 18+ year olds must weigh at least 110 pounds.
