Support our mission

The Armed Services Blood Bank Center has scheduled two blood drives on Okinawa this week.

The first drive is from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday at the Marine Corps Air Station Futenma chapel. The other is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday in Kinser Surfside on Camp Kinser.

All publicized blood drives are open to servicemembers, Department of Defense civilians and family members 17 years old and older.

While mission requirements may require canceling or rescheduling a blood drive, donors may confirm a specific drive as it draws near by going to the Web site and clicking on “info for patients and community,” then “blood donor program,” or by calling the Armed Services Blood Bank Center at 643-7737.

For more information or to schedule a blood drive for your command, contact C. Tracy Parmer, donor recruiter, at DSN 643-7710 or 643-7737, or via e-mail at
