Oklahoma Blood Institute is looking for local heroes who are strong, bold, and fearless to help save the lives of their fellow Oklahomans. Oklahoma Blood Institute will hold a blood drive with Canute Community Sponsored by Canute Lions Club on Monday, Feb. 19, from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Canute Heritage Center at 101 N. 9th Street. Each blood donor will receive their choice of t-shirt in “Strong” olive, “Bold” maroon, or “Fearless” teal. Healthy adults, age sixteen and up, are encouraged to give blood.*

“Accidents happen. People are battling cancer. Babies are born prematurely,” said John Armitage, M.D., president and CEO of Oklahoma Blood Institute. “The need for blood is constant, and there is no substitute. Unfortunately, until we know that someone is fighting for life, we just don’t think about how critical it is.”
