Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Alva campus is partnering with the Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) to hold a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 24-25, 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 “Be Strong, Bold, and Fearless” t-shirt, free health screenings and donor rewards points.

Free pizza will be available and all donors will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a FlatSafe storm shelter. Donors will also receive a coupon from Whataburger for a free honey butter chicken biscuit and be entered for a chance to win Whataburger for a year. There will also be a drawing for a $25 Northwestern Bookstore gift card.

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

OBI is encouraging everyone to accept the “Be Prepared Challenge” to save more local lives in 2018. 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. Approximately 1,200 volunteer blood donors are needed each day to maintain the supply.

OBI, who is in its 41st year of saving local lives, serves more than 160 hospitals, medical facilities and air ambulances statewide. 

To make an appointment, to volunteer or have questions answered please contact Angie Henson, service learning coordinator and administrative assistant for Northwestern’s DNP program, at (580) 327-8442 or aahenson@nwosu.edu.
