At Riverwind, we believe it is an important part of our mission to be an involved member of our community. One of the ways we do this is by participating in various community events throughout the year. On Jan. 5, we partnered with 100.5 The KATT and the Oklahoma Blood Institute to provide life-saving donations to our friends, neighbors and fellow Oklahomans.
We are proud to announce that our first blood drive of 2017 was a great success, thanks to our employees, families and loyal patrons.
Here’s a breakdown of the results from the Jan. 5 blood drive:
120 viable donors
120 pints of blood
Up to 3 lives saved per pint donated
360 lives saved
During the blood drive, Wild Card Members who donated received $10 in bonus play and a KATT t-shirt. One lucky donor even walked away with a guitar signed by the band Sixx:A.M.!
Did you miss out on your chance to donate this time around? Don’t worry; we have at least two more blood drives already planned for this year. Join us on May 17 and July 26 for our next donor drives. Remember, with a blood donation, you could be saving the life of your friend, coworker or neighbor. It’s an easy way to show your community you care.
