One in every seven people entering a hospital will need blood and every two seconds someone is in need of blood. Since there is no substitute for human blood, supplies must constantly be renewed. Although those with O-negative type blood are strongly encouraged to donate, Oklahoma Blood Institute welcomes all donor participation in the two drives.

 

Oklahoma Blood Institute manages the life-saving donations from more than 209,000 individuals each year and is the ninth largest, non-profit blood center in America.  For more information or to make an appointment, contact Oklahoma Blood Institute at 419-1368 or visit us at www.obi.org.
