OBI hosting blood drive today


TAHLEQUAH — Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI) is having a blood drive at Tahlequah City Hospital’s West Conference Room (behind Armstrong Bank), 1400 E. Downing, Thursday, Jan. 2, from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m.

All blood types are needed, but those with O-negative type blood are especially encouraged to donate, as it can be used by anyone in an emergency situation when a patient’s blood type has not yet been identified.

Appointments are not required but can be made by calling (877) 340-8777 or visiting obi.org.
