Donate at the 3rd Annual Day of Caring Food and Blood Drive on June 24

Our 3rd Annual Food and Blood Drive will have food donation sites as well as nine blood drives across Tulsa Area United Way’s six-county service area.

Last year, more than 2,200 donors contributed 42,000+ pounds of food. Additionally, individuals donated nearly 200 pints of blood, providing life-saving medical care to 575 people. This year, we need you to participate so we can serve even more of our friends and neighbors in need.
