Durant High School’s Health Occupant Students of America (HOSA) will be hosting a blood drive on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
The blood drive will be from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. that day. All students wanting to participate in the drive will need parental consent. You also have to be at least 16 years of age to participate.
If you come give blood, you will receive a free OU or OSU t-shirt. You also get your name entered into a drawing for the chance to win Bedlam tickets.
In last year’s drive the received 128 units of blood. The goal for this year’s drive is 125 units of blood. “Come give blood,” Toni McLemore said.
HOSA will be hosting a second blood drive in the Spring. The second drive usually happens around March.
