Show your love and support for our American troops by donating blood the month of February. You may donate anytime this month or on Valentines Day, February 14, at any Hoxworth location.
The Yellow Ribbon Support Center in Eastgate Cincinnati has announced it's holding a Hoxworth mobile blood drive at their location on Saturday, February 23, 2013, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. located at Yellow Ribbon Support Center, 700 Eastgate South Drive, #430, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45245
Keith Maupin, director of the Yellow Ribbon Support Center, is asking everyone to support troops by giving a blood donation. Maupin is the father of American hero, Army Staff Sergeant Matt Maupin who was captured by Iraqi insurgents in April 2004 while serving in the war in Iraq.
Matt Maupin’s convoy came under attack near Baghdad, Iraq and he was taken hostage and later executed. He was missing in action for four years but was found and identified in late March 2008.
Keith Maupin has dedicated his life to supporting our troops and the memory of his son and running the YRSC. He is there for other soldiers families who have fallen in the line of duty and is a great source of support in their time of need.
All donors should call the mobile unit in advance to reserve one of 60 spots available on the mobile unit and make an appointment.
Keith Maupin says, “I should mention that you can go to any Hoxworth location to give blood. But you have to mention to them that it is for the Yellow Ribbon Support Center before it will count towards the total tally and it has to be during the month of February to count.”
In the great words of President John F. Kennedy - "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." This is truly one way to give back to those serving our country.
