Military Mondays – Help The Army Maintain It’s Blood Supply By Becoming A Blood Donor

“How can I help the troops stationed at Fort Bliss?”  I get that question all the time, and the El Paso Times says there is a very easy answer – donate blood.  The Fort Bliss Blood Donor Center at William Beaumont Army Medical Center is part of the official blood program for the U.S. Military, and they always need new donors.

The center works with 19 other similar centers as part of the Armed Services Blood Program.

The blood donated goes to U.S. military installations and operations around the world, including Afghanistan.

Because blood has a shelf life of only 42 days and donors can only donate every 57 days, it’s important to have a large pool of donors so the supply can be kept fresh and plentiful.

If you would like to donate, you can go to the Fort Bliss Blood Donor Center at lower Beaumont at 7167 Lazear Road, Monday through Friday from 8am to 3pm.  Use the Fred Wilson gate, do a U-turn at the first available spot where you can turn left.  The Blood Donor Center is on the right just as you are about to leave Beaumont.

You can make an appointment or go on a walk-in basis.

The public is welcome to donate.

If you need more information about donating, call 742-6365 or go to http://militaryblood.dod.mil/Donors/where_to_give.aspx#.
