TAHLEQUAH — Blood donors at Cornerstone Fellowship Church’s blood drive will impact lives in the local area as well as internationally.

Oklahoma Blood Institute will make a financial contribution to Global Blood Fund for each person who donates Wednesday, March 5, between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. at 718 Pendleton St. in the Bloodmobile.

Global Blood Fund is a nonprofit that supports struggling blood centers abroad. Equipment and supplies, often unavailable in certain countries, are provided through the charity.

Those who are healthy and 16 years or older can typically donate blood. All donors receive free health screenings and Donor Rewards Points, redeemable online for gift cards and merchandise.
