Important Blood Drive This Monday and Tuesday at SWOSU


A blood drive will be held this Monday and Tuesday, April 5-6, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, and Oklahoma Blood Institute officials are saying the need for blood is critical.

Sponsoring the upcoming blood drive is SWOSU Residence Life. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate in the drive that is 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. both days in the SWOSU Wellness Center.

Richard Story, blood program consultant with the Oklahoma Blood Institute, said there has been a significant increase for blood products at hospitals and medical facilities in Oklahoma and the Institute is dangerously near a two-day level.

"Residence Life is our sponsor for this drive and they have their sleeves rolled up and they will be scouring the campus and area communities for support," Story said.

Questions about the drive can be addressed to  or Chad Martin on the SWOSU campus at 580.774.3024.
