Northwestern to play host to blood drive Feb. 26-27

Due to winter storms, Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) officials indicate that the blood supply for patients in local hospitals has reached a critical low. Northwestern Oklahoma State University is ready to help with the cause by playing host to a two-day blood drive on Wednesday, Feb. 26, and Thursday, Feb. 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Wednesday and Thursday bloodmobiles will be located on the south side of the J.R. Holder Wellness Center with registration inside the Center. On Thursday there also will be a traditional setup at the Baptist Student Union in addition to the bloodmobile. 

Anyone, who is 16 years and older and healthy, can donate and receive an OBI Feel Bold T-shirt, free health screenings and Donor Rewards points. 

Students who wish to volunteer during the blood drive should contact Rachel Stewart, special events coordinator, at (580) 327-8178 or
