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, 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 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.

Zarrow International School hosts Giant Garage Sale

Due to statewide budget cuts, Henry Zarrow International School (HZIS) parents are forced to come up with alternative ways to provide funding for students and teachers. On September 6th, we are hosting an enormous indoor garage sale, called Bargains at Borders.  It will be located at the old Borders Books on 21st Street. Our goal is to raise $16,000.00 dollars! That’s a lot of dinero!We have been collecting garage sale donations throughout the community for quite some time. We are working very hard to fill the gap that state funding cannot, but we can’t do it without community help from people like you.  HENRY ZARROW INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLHenry Zarrow International Elementary School begins immersing children in the Spanish language in kindergarten. Every subject is taught in Spanish until the second grade, when students are introduced to formal English studies. Research shows that students immersed in foreign language at an early age develop excellent listening skills and stronger creative thinking and problem solving abilities. Zarrow staff have found by the fifth grade, students emerge as bi-lingual citizens with unlimited opportunities.Named after renowned Tulsa philanthropist Henry Zarrow, the school is a child-centered learning community with the goal of producing socially responsible citizens with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. Students receive instruction in fine arts, physical education, computers, technology, science, music, and the opportunity to learn the Orff instrument process, a method based on the works of European composer Carl Orff.For more information about the Henry Zarrow International School visit thier website at

Iron Gate Kicks Off Annual Kid’s Pack Challenge

Iron Gate is launching its Annual Back to School Kid's pack challenge during the month of August. Individuals, groups, companies and organizations are encouraged to help fill the packs for young guests of Iron Gate.

Each kid's pack consists of a quart-sized pack of healthy, kid-friendly snacks for every hungry or homeless child who comes to Iron Gate. This year, Iron Gate will give out about 12,000 Kids' Packs. A $5 donation provides individual pack.

The goal of the kids pack challenge is to raise at least $5,000 to cover the expense of 1,000 kid’s packs for the first month of school in Tulsa. 


“If we could raise enough money to cover the first semester, that would be outstanding, “ said Connie Cronley, executive director of Iron Gate.

Pre-assembled food packs will contain approximately five different snacks that require no preparation and provide nutrition and calories for hungry kids.

 “One in four children goes to bed hungry. Over 36,700 children are hungry in Tulsa County. These children would fill up two BOK centers.  And that’s why at Iron Gate we feed people. “

“We’ve been feeding hungry and homeless people for 36 years.  We need your help because so many people in Tulsa are hungry and because no child should go to bed hungry.” Cronley added.

Iron Gate is a downtown soup kitchen and grocery pantry with the mission of feeding the hungry and  homeless of Tulsa every year. Last year Iron Gate fed over 300,000 Tulsans.

For more information or to donate to the Kid’s Pack Challenge, please contact Meghann Ray, communications director at 918.359.9038 or email: Donationa can also be made on Iron Gates website at
