Oklahoma Blood Institute knows this summer will be different, and it may be a time for staycations or camping trips. Oklahoma Blood Institute needs donors to help rebuild the blood supply in response to the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis and is urging healthy adults to take some time to save lives this summer.

Individuals ages sixteen and up are urged to give blood at one of these locations:

· Pioneer Nutrition and Energy, 201 N. 14th Street; Sunday, July 19th, from Noon to 3pm

· Central Baptist Church, 1732 E. Coleman Road; Tuesday, July 21st, from 1:30pm to 4:30pm

· AllianceHealth Ponca City, 14th & Hartford; Friday, July 24th, from 10am to 4pm

Donors will receive a free summer camper t-shirt and their choice of one free entry voucher to Frontier City or Science Museum Oklahoma, or two free entries to Safari Joe’s H2O Water Park, to be redeemed at yourbloodinstitute.org. Oklahoma Blood Institute supports the inventory for patients in more than 160 hospitals, medical facilities and air ambulances statewide.

Free COVID-19 antibody screening will be offered to donors eighteen and older.* Masks are required for all donors and will be provided if needed.

Appointments can be made by calling 1-877-340-8777 or visiting obi.org.
