Fort Carson will host an Armed Services Blood Program Blood Drive March 13-14, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the post’s Special Events Center. Those wishing to donate blood can set up an appointment by clicking on the link below. Walk-ins will also be accepted.

Everyone is welcome to donate providing they are healthy (over the age of 17, weigh at least 110 pounds and not have donated blood in the last 56 days). “Healthy" means that you feel well and can perform normal activities.

Non-Department of Defense decaled vehicles should enter Fort Carson through Gate 1 for vehicle inspection. Gate 1 is located at Highway 115 at Nelson Boulevard. Drivers need to present a current insurance card and valid vehicle registration and driver’s license. Adult passengers must present current government issued photo identification.

The need for blood remains critical in part because of the continued support of Operation Iraqi and Enduring Freedom. Many Soldiers are deferred from donating blood because of their service overseas, so the ASBP actively seeks civilians who are able to donate.
