January 4, 2016 ─ The 97.5 KMOD New Year Blood Drive with Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) marks seven years of rockin’ Oklahomans giving life-saving blood donations. Bartlesville-area residents can donate Saturday, January 16, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Washington Park Mall, for a chance to win a 2016 Rocklahoma VIP prize package*. Each donor will also receive a limited edition KMOD Star Wars themed T-shirt*, while supplies last.
“97.5 KMOD provides the enthusiasm needed at this critical time to encourage community support of blood donation,” said Jan Laub, Executive Director, Oklahoma Blood Institute Tulsa. “In January, our typical, three-day supply of blood for Oklahomans in need, is susceptible to weather that can deter donors. 97.5 KMOD has stepped up the past seven years to promote the need to get out and give. We especially ask 97.5 KMOD listeners – and all Oklahomans – to take an hour to provide life-saving blood.”
Oklahoma Blood Institute is the state’s local non-profit blood center providing every drop of blood for patients in 154 medical facilities across Oklahoma including Saint Francis Health System, all VA, Indian & Children’s hospitals. Each donation provides life-saving blood for up to three Oklahomans. Healthy adults, 16 and older**, are encouraged to donate. Donations can be made every 56 days.
