Newkirk’s first responders are looking for citizens to support their efforts through blood donation with Oklahoma Blood Institute. Those who give at the Boots & Badges blood drive on Friday, July 10 will provide blood needed to save local lives, such as those that firefighters and law enforcement officers save every day.
Healthy adults are urged to give blood at Newkirk Fire Department between 1pm and 6pm. All donors will receive special-edition Boots & Badges T-shirts. By giving blood at this drive, donors will show their support for the firefighters and law enforcement officers who serve their community.
Oklahoma Blood Institute is also offering FREE COVID-19 antibody testing for blood donors ages 18 and up at this Boots & Badges Blood Drive. Donation appointments are needed to allow for recommended social distancing.
