Blood Levels Critically Low

Posted: Updated:

Local blood supplies are not where they should be, so one local company is calling on more donors.

Verizon Wireless teamed up with the Oklahoma Blood Institute Saturday.

Winter donations are down, with illnesses like the flu and incliment weather that keeps donors from getting out in the elements.

The OBI is asking those who are well to stand in for those who are not.

Donors with OBI provide blood to patients in 140 medical facilities across the state, including 27 here in Tulsa and Northeast Oklahoma.
