EDMOND, Okla. — Petra Industries, the consumer electronic industry’s accessory authority, partnered with the Oklahoma Blood Institute to host a blood drive on July 28 at their corporate office in Edmond, OK.
Petra team members lined up and donate blood for those in their community who will need it most. The 17 people that lined up throughout their busy workday helped to save 51 lives in our community.
“I consider donating blood giving someone the gift of life, and I feel like it’s a great way to help out those in need,” said Petra Team member Austin Chappell. “People all around Oklahoma are in need of blood, so if I can give them another chance at life by making a simple blood donation, I’m going to unreservedly do it.”
