Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

Roll up your sleeve and support your local first responders by giving blood with Our Blood Institute at a local Boots & Badges blood drive!

Our Blood Institute (OBI) will host the Charleston Boots and Badges Blood Drive on Monday, July 22, from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 pm at the First United Methodist Church Activity Center. With your blood donation you’ll receive a free entry to Magic Springs Theme Park and Water Park in Hot Springs, AR, and a voucher for 2 admissions to the NWA Naturals home game on Sunday, July 21.

Successful donors will also receive a limited-edition Boots & Badges T-shirt, while supplies last.*

“Our first responders see the daily need for blood first-hand when the people they rescue require life-saving treatment,” said Dr. John Armitage, president & CEO of Our Blood Institute. “We can’t say enough about the service our police, fire and EMSA provide, and we owe it to them to do our part in making sure blood is available in emergency situations.”

Anyone who is healthy and 16 years old* or older can give blood. Blood can be donated every 56 days and platelets can be given as often as every seven days, up to 24 times a year.

Appointments to donate can be made online at obi.org or by calling 877-340-8777.
