PLC to sponsor blood drive Oct. 9-10

Northwestern Oklahoma State University encourages everyone to participate in the upcoming Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) blood drive in the Student Center Ranger Room on the Alva campus from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 9, and Thursday, Oct. 10. The President’s Leadership Class (PLC) is sponsoring this drive.

Blood donors will receive a free T-shirt, bonus points in participating classes and free sandwiches from Chartwell’s catering. 

“One in three people will need blood in a lifetime,” said John Armitage, president and CEO of OBI.  “That is why it is important to donate every 56 days for patients in our local hospitals who need blood to survive.”
