Oklahoma Blood Institute Holding Community Blood Drive

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ Summer is often a time when blood donations decrease. 

As temperatures rise, schools are dismissed, and travel and vacation plans fill the summer. Unfortunately, the need for blood does not take a vacation.

This summer, you can make a difference by supporting the first ever Lawton Community Blood Drive. It will be hosted by the Lawton/Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce. The first 100 donors will be awarded with a pint of ice cream.

The blood drive will be Friday, June 28 from noon - 5 PM. It will be located at the Lawton/Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce building at 3rd and A Avenue in Lawton. For more information, contact Mary Spannagel  at 580-512-3221.
