Northwestern to play host to blood drive Feb. 14-15

February 3, 2017

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Alva campus is partnering with the Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) to hold a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 14-15, in the Student Center Ranger Room.

Northwestern sorority members from Delta Zeta and Alpha Sigma Alpha are co-sponsoring the event.

All blood donors will receive a free limited edition “Blood Donor Challenge” t-shirt, free health screenings and donor rewards points.

Donors are asked have a photo ID available to give blood.

OBI is encouraging everyone to accept the “Blood Donor Challenge” to save more local lives in 2017. OBI officials say that one blood donation can save as many as three lives and takes only about an hour to give. Blood donations can be made every 56 days.

OBI, who is in its 40th year of saving local lives, serves more than 160 hospitals, medical facilities and air ambulances statewide.
