November 20th, 2018 12:00am
Oklahoma is facing a “severe” blood shortage as we head into the holiday season! Donations were down in September and October, and typically drop at the end of the year.
According to the Brookhaven National Laboratory; 32,000 pints of blood are necessary.
Just think ,…Every three seconds,… and One out of every 10 people entering a hospital needs blood.
So let’s do our part!
Today locations are:
Chickasha YMCA from 8:00 am – 11am
Glenhaven Retirement Village from 1pm - 4pm
