Wister fire department and law enforcement staffs are asking all area residents to come to the Guns â€˜N Hoses blood drive with Oklahoma Blood Institute from 1:30 to 6 p.m., Tuesday, June 25, in the high school band room.
To fuel a little healthy competition, donors will choose which department to support by donating on behalf of law enforcement or the fire department.
Donors will receive a voucher, redeemable for two tickets to the Tulsa Zoo and this yearâ€™s Guns â€˜N Hoses T-shirt.Â
Anyone who is healthy and 16 years of age can donate, and donations can be made every 56 days.
Oklahoma Blood Institute is the ninth-largest, non-profit blood center in America, providing every drop of blood needed by patients in more than 135 medical facilities across Oklahoma.
