OKLAHOMA CITY – While many people are staying home as snow continues to move through parts of the state, one organization is hoping some generous Oklahomans will brave the cold to help those in need.

The Oklahoma Blood Institute says the winter weather negatively impacts donations of blood this time of year.

The institute urges healthy adults to give blood and platelets, which will then be given to local hospitals.
