Be Part of a Winning Team of Lifesavers with Our Blood Institute! Magazine Homecoming Blood Drive June 8


Join Our Blood Institute’s Team Donor by giving blood and saving lives this May!

Our Blood Institute (OBI) will hold a blood drive with Magazine Homecoming on Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the bloodmobile parked across from City Hall. 

Successful donors will receive a free “Team Donor” T-shirt and one free entry to Magic Springs Theme Park and Water Park.

“We take our role as the community blood provider very seriously,” said Dr. John Armitage, president and CEO of Our Blood Institute. “Our blood supply is an essential part of our health care system, so we’re extremely thankful for partners like the Magic Springs for helping ensure we have a healthy blood supply for patients in need.” 

When you visit Magic Springs Theme Park and Water Park, you get two parks for the price of one! Immerse yourself in over 80 attractions including Arkansas Twister roller coaster and thrill rides such as Plummet Summit and The Gauntlet. When you’re ready to cool off, head over to Crystal Falls to take a dip in the pool and action-packed water slides. There’s something for everyone at Magic Springs.

Every two seconds, someone needs blood, and the supply must be constantly renewed. It takes approximately 1,200 donors a day to meet those needs.

Anyone who is healthy and 16 years old* or older can give blood. Appointments to donate can be made online at obi.org or by calling 877-340-8777. Walk-ins are also welcome. 

*16-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds and provide signed parental permission; 17-year-olds must weigh at least 125 pounds; 18+ year olds must weigh at least 110 pounds. Photo ID required.
