ASHEBORO — On Wednesday, Oct. 5, Randolph County Government will sponsor its 13th annual blood drive to support the military.
It will be held from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at the National Guard Armory, 1430 S. Fayetteville St., Asheboro.
The Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP) is the official U.S. military blood program. Providing an opportunity for service members, their families and civilians to support the military in a meaningful way, the ASBP is a direct connection between those who give and the sick and injured who need their help.
Blood donated directly to the ASBP equates to fewer units they have to purchase from an outside source. Yes, “purchase.” Other sources of blood are sold to agencies that need the supply, including to the military.
Donations will support deployed military, Womack Army Medical Center and other military treatment facilities within the Department of Defense. The Fort Bragg Blood Donor Center is one of more than 20 Armed Services Blood Program blood donor centers worldwide.
