Our Blood Institute faces a dangerous emergency blood shortage and is issuing an immediate call for donors of all blood types. Weather cancellations are pouring in across our territories on top of an already critically low blood supply. Our Blood Institute typically has a three-to five-day supply of lifesaving blood available, but it is well below that level now.
Please call 877-340-8777 or click HERE to find a donor center or to locate a blood drive near you today.
Our Blood Institute is the sixth-largest independent blood center in the nation, with 16 donor centers in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas, including Coffee Memorial Blood Center in Amarillo. OBI is the nonprofit blood provider for patients at more than 240 hospitals, medical facilities, and air ambulances across all three states.
