Kiwanis & Rotary Clubs Sponsoring Blood Drive at SWOSU

A blood drive sponsored by the Weatherford Kiwanis and Rotary community clubs will be held Monday, June 23, at the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Wellness Center in Weatherford.

Kiwanis and Rotary members invite the public, faculty, staff and students to donate at the drive that runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each donor will receive two free passes to the Oklahoma City or Tulsa Zoo and a free t-shirt from the Oklahoma Blood Institute.

Donating just once can save up to three lives, according to the Oklahoma Blood Institute. Helpful tips from the OBI for a successful donation include eating well, getting a good night’s sleep and drinking plenty of fluids before giving blood. Remember, a photo ID is required to donate.
