Blood drive on McChord

Armed Service Blood Bank Center hosts a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 30 at the Chapel Support Center. The blood collected from the drive goes directly to aid wounded servicemembers in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

Interested donors (ages 17 and older) should weigh at least 110 pounds, have been feeling well for at least three days, be well hydrated and have eaten something prior to donating.

According to Victor Shermer with the ASBBC, the goal is to top the previous record of 56 units, which set at a blood drive at McChord earlier this year.

All of the blood donated will go to military members. After the quota for the blood headed to the area of responsibility is met, the remaining units will go to military hospitals in the Pacific Northwest.
