Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

The legend returns! Our Blood Institute’s popular Bigfoot shirt is back with a new summer twist. Save lives by giving blood with OBI to get Bigfoot’s shirt before it’s gone! Who knows when Bigfoot will be spotted again.

Our Blood Institute (OBI) will host the Walmart Greenwood Blood Drive on Sunday, July 28, from10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the bloodmobile.  

Successful donors will receive a free Bigfoot Returns T-shirt and choice of one free entry to Magic Springs Theme Park and Water Park, Frontier City or Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.

“You may be ready for some fun in the sun this summer, but accidents still happen,” said Dr. John Armitage, president and CEO of Our Blood Institute. “Your blood donation can save the lives of up to three people and is essential in keeping up the blood supply in your local hospitals. We are extremely thankful for our partnerships with Magic Springs Theme Park and Water Park, Frontier City and Hurricane Harbor for recognizing the importance of blood donations in our community.”

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.

There’s no shortage of fun at OKC’s Frontier City Theme Park! Experience thrilling coasters, dining, shopping, attractions and more for kids, adults and everyone in between! Adrenaline junkies won’t resist taking a ride on the classic Wildcat wooden roller coaster or the Silver Bullet’s high-speeds coaster. Not one for thrill rides? Take a ride around the Grand Centennial Ferris Wheel or drive back in time with Tin Lizzy’s electric-powered, antique cars. 

Looking to cool off as the season heats up? Look no further than Six Flags Hurricane Harbor for pulse-pounding water slides, relaxing lazy rivers and family-friendly play areas. There’s something for the whole family at Hurricane Harbor!

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.
