Come out of hibernation to save lives this winter!

Friday, January 26, 2024 - Our Blood Institute needs you to come out of hibernation and help save lives through the end of winter!

Give blood during at an Our Blood Institute donor center or mobile drive to receive a glow-in-the-dark “When I’m Not Hibernating, I’m Donating Blood” T-shirt.

The winter is historically a challenging time for blood donations as many people are staying indoors due to the weather, causing a negative impact on the blood supply. OBI needs 1,200 donors a day to maintain an adequate blood supply.

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

· Walmart Sallisaw; Friday, February 2, 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the bloodmobile.

· NHS Sequoyah, Friday, February 2, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the bloodmobile.

· Muldrow Public Library; Friday, February 9, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the bloodmobile.

Anyone who is healthy and 16 years old* or older can give blood. Donation typically takes only about an hour, and one donation saves up to three lives. Appointments to donate can be made online at or by calling 877-340-8777. Walk-ins are also welcome.

*16-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds and provide signed parental permission; 17-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds; 18+ year olds must weigh at least 110 pounds. Photo ID required.
