Baron Mascot Coming to SWOSU for Blood Drive


Southwestern Oklahoma State University's Residence Life will sponsor a blood drive on Monday and Tuesday, February 7-8, on the Weatherford campus.

The Oklahoma Blood Institute drive will be held in the SWOSU Wellness Center, and everyone above the age of 17 is invited and encouraged to attend. The drive will be held from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. both days.

Chad Martin, director of Residence Life at SWOSU, said tickets to an Oklahoma City Baron hockey team game will be offered to the first 75 people that give blood each day. Plus, on Monday, the Baron mascot and representatives from the team will be on the SWOSU campus handing out promotional items. 

OBI Blood Program Consultant Rick Story said the OBI is pleased to partner with SWOSU Residence Life in another important blood drive on the Weatherford campus.
