PEC, Chickasaw Nation, and Mercy celebrate successful drive


hanks to the unselfi shness of the Ada community and local blood donors, 225 units of blood were collected during the recent 7th


Annual Ada All-American


Blood Drive held on July 6 at PEC and on July 7 at the Pontotoc County Agri-Plex. Coordinated each year by the Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI), the two-day annual drive was sponsored by three local Ada employers, the Chickasaw Nation, Mercy Hospital, and PEC. Blood collected during the event helps to increase the blood supply in the Region during the fourth of July holiday week when the need for blood historically increases.


OBI estimates that approximately 675 lives will be saved as a direct result of local donors’ eff orts during Ada’s recent All-American drive, bringing the overall total lives saved up to 4,175 since 2010 when the Chickasaw Nation, Mercy and PEC fi rst joined forces.


861300200 “We are grateful for the overwhelming


response we saw from the employees at each of our sponsor organizations, along with many of our members and area residents,” said Jennifer Boeck, PEC’s Vice-President of Communications. “Because of their generous support, we were able to meet the drive’s noteworthy goal of 225 units of blood which will help stabilize our local blood reserves.”
