Northwestern blood drive falls short of goal

February 24, 2009

The Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) collected 240 units of blood from donors during the Northwestern Oklahoma State University-Alva drive Feb. 18-19, falling short of the goal of 402 units. A total of 15 units were collected during the Northwestern-Enid drive on Feb. 17.

“We truly appreciate the donors and volunteers who took time out of their day to save someone's life,” Valerie Curry, OBI Blood Program Consultant, said.

“Northwestern students, faculty and staff are incredibly selfless and do so much good for the community when they donate blood with OBI. We continually call on the students and employees at Northwestern to donate blood because of our continued success there, and hope to see great success during the next blood drive in April.”

Northwestern-Alva will play host to an additional one-day spring blood drive April 28 in the Ranger Room.
