national blood donor month

January is the annual observance of National Blood Donor Month., with donations allowing the Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP) to continue providing lifesaving blood products to service members and their families in their times of need.

National Blood Donor Month, established by a presidential proclamation in 1969, was created to address blood shortages during the winter season and to thank donors who supported the nation’s blood supply throughout the past year. For 70 years, voluntary donations have allowed the ASBP to source and deliver safe and effective blood products to warfighters at the edges of the battlefield.
