Durant and Bryan County residents are rolling up their sleeves to participate in a life-saving, friendly competition this Thursday, May 3, 2012.
From 9am until 4pm, at the Durant City Hall, residents are invited to come donate blood to save lives. One donation can save the lives of three people. The Oklahoma Blood Institute says they need at least 800 units a day to keep hospitals supplied. Last year, 90 donors gave blood and this year, OBI expects an even better turnout.
