Oklahoma Blood Institute and the OKC Zoo Team Up to Help Patients “Feel Strong”

June 22, 2011

 
Blood donors aren’t the only ones who “feel strong” when they donate with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI). Patients who rely on blood from local donors also feel strong knowing blood is available, if needed.
 
The Oklahoma City Zoo has, once again, joined OBI this summer by providing a voucher, good for two tickets to the Oklahoma City Zoo, for each donor.
 
Along with saving up to three lives with a blood donation, donors will receive a T-shirt, featuring the Zoo’s popular Asian elephants.  Health screenings and Donor Rewards points, redeemable in OBI’s online store, are also provided.
 
“We are very grateful for such loyal blood donors,” said Dr. John Armitage, OBI President and CEO. “And we are also very appreciative to the Oklahoma City Zoo for being great community partners.”
 
Anyone who is healthy and 16 years of age can donate,* and donations can be made every 56 days.
 
Oklahoma Blood Institute is the ninth largest, non-profit blood center in America.
 
For more information or to make an appointment, contact Oklahoma Blood Institute at 877-340-8777 or visit us at www.obi.org.
