ADA, OK -- During the summer, and especially during the holiday, accidents increase which drives up the need for blood.
News12 is helping the Texoma Regional Blood Center and Oklahoma Blood Institute host blood drives all across Texoma.
Wednesday, crews and volunteers took donations at the Pontotoc County Agri-plex.
Blood Program Consultant, Shana Wood, says one blood donation could help save the lives of three people.
One donor shared why she says donating is a rewarding experience.
"We just need to help, and I just want to help someone," says donor, Deania Brewer. "If there's a time of need or a time of crisis, I would love to be able to know that I have helped someone."
There will be several other blood drives this week, you can find a location near you on our web channel at www.kxii.com
