Written by Maria Christina Yager  
Blanchfield Army Community Hospital 

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – Soldiers, retirees, family members, federal employees and contractors on Fort Campbell can support deployed service members by participating in an Armed Services Blood Program blood drive on post March 21st from 9:00am to 3:00pm at the Soldier Support Center, Building 2702 Michigan Avenue.

The ASBP is the official blood collection and transfusion agency for the U.S. military. It provides blood and blood products to military medical facilities in Afghanistan, Iraq and other deployed locations as well as those on installations around the world. Blood donations are perishable and program officials said the Military Healthcare System requires 400 units of blood every day and looks to the ASBP to deliver that blood.

American Red Cross issues Emergency Call for Blood Donors

 

American Red Cross

American Red CrossNashville, TN – A donation shortfall over the winter holidays is prompting the American Red Cross to issue an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to give now to prevent a blood shortage from continuing throughout winter and affecting patient care.

The Red Cross collected more than 27,000 fewer blood and platelet donations the weeks of Christmas and New Year’s than needed to sustain a sufficient blood supply. During this period, about 1,350 fewer blood drives were hosted by volunteer sponsor groups than required to meet patient needs as busy holiday schedules kept many donors away.

Fewer drives, busy holiday schedules lead to blood shortage says American Red Cross. (Amanda Romney/American Red Cross)
