KRMG's Give Something That Means Something Holiday Blood Drive

KRMG invites you to give one last gift this holiday season at the eighth annual Tulsa holiday blood drive.

 

The American Red Cross is asking area residents to be part of something meaningful this holiday season by giving blood at the eighth annual Tulsa Holiday Blood Drive.

 

To help ensure patients everywhere have the blood products they need this winter, the Red Cross, KRMG and FOX23 will host the annual drive on Dec. 22- 23. As a thank you to Tulsa-area residents who put donating blood at the top of their holiday to-do list, all presenting donors will also receive a long-sleeve Red Cross T-shirt.

 

“We believe so much in our community; the charitable spirit runs very high,” said Levi May, Director of Branding and Programming for NEWS102.3 and AM740 KRMG. “KRMG has partnered, once again, with the Red Cross right here in Tulsa, to help spread a giving message, and with your help, actions that saves lives.”

 

Give Something that Means Something Tulsa Holiday Blood Drive

Dec. 22- 23 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Tulsa Blood Donation Center, 10151 E. 11th St.

Dec. 22- 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Sears Court, Woodland Hills Mall, 7021 S. Memorial Dr.

 

The Holiday Blood Drive comes at an important time for the Red Cross because fewer donations are made this time of year due to holiday activities, travel, winter weather and seasonal illnesses. Blood donors with all types, especially AB, O, B negative and A negative, are encouraged to give.

 

It is recommended to schedule an appointment for the Tulsa Holiday Blood Drive by visiting redcrossblood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App.

 

Blood donors can now save time at their next donation by using RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, prior to arriving at the blood drive. To get started, visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass and follow the instructions on the site.

 

How to donate blood

A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Labor Day Weekend Blood Drive

With the arrival of Labor Day and the unofficial end to summer, the American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to roll up a sleeve and give blood to help ensure sufficient supplies over the holiday weekend. To help draw attention to the need for blood during the long holiday weekend, the Red Cross is partnering with Fox 23 and Cox Radio to encourage blood donations.

All presenting blood donors between Aug. 30 and Sept. 2 will receive a complimentary Red Cross T-shirt (while supplies last.) Also, courtesy of Cox Radio, presenting donors will have a chance to win a Dallas Cowboys Stadium tour trip that includes a one-night stay at Candlewood Suites in Arlington, two tickets to Hurricane Harbor and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and free food from J.

Congressman Jim Bridenstine to serve as honorary event chairman

While quantities last, all presenting donors at the Summer Salute Blood Drive will receive a patriotic T-shirt, compliments of KRMG’s Take Action Campaign.

Everyone coming to donate can also register to win one of two American flags flown over the Capitol during the Memorial Day weekend.

“Ensuring blood is on hospital shelves for those in need is our mission, but we can’t fulfill that mission alone,” said Steve Nagle, CEO, Southwest Blood Services Region. “Thank you Congressman Bridenstine and everyone who is helping the Red Cross prepare our community’s blood supply for the long holiday weekend.”

During the summer months of June, July and August, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what hospital patients need. If at least two more donors gave blood at every Red Cross blood drive this summer – above what’s expected – the Red Cross would be better assured of having enough lifesaving blood products available for patients in need. Live a story. Give a story. Donate blood.

Red Cross announces Summer Salute Blood Drive with Congressman Jim Bridenstine to serve as honorary event chairman.

When:  July 1 from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and July 2 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Where: American Red Cross Tulsa Blood Donation Center, 101051 E. 11th Street, Tulsa, Okla.
