Several opportunities to donate blood on Okinawa next week

Thanksgiving week begins the “Season of Giving” and what better way to give than to donate a pint of blood?

There will be three chances to donate blood next week as the Armed Services Blood Bank Center makes stops at Torii Station, Camp Courtney and Camp Foster. The Blood Bank is the sole source of blood products for the entire U.S. Pacific Command’s 18 medical treatment facilities, according to Blood Donor Recruiter Tracy Parmer.

Blood products collected on Okinawa routinely are shipped throughout Japan, South Korea, Guam, Hawaii and numerous ships throughout the USPACOM area of responsibility.

* Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Building 250, Torii Station, sponsored by the
10th Army Support Group.
* Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Courtney Chapel, Camp Courtney.
* Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Globe & Anchor, Camp Foster, sponsored by
the 53rd Signal Battalion.
