Charlottesville Broadcasters Blood Drive

Browse General

Donate Blood and Help Save Lives at this special Broadcasters summer blood drive! Friday, July 12th, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at DoubleTree Hotel in Charlottesville (click here for directions).

Join us Friday, July 12th for a special blood drive to help support area hospitals and patients. We will be at the DoubleTree Hotel in Charlottesville from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. collecting blood. All participating donors can enjoy free food, limited-edition t-shirts, and hourly prize raffles!*

Summer is a traditionally difficult time for collecting blood. Many of our regular donors are traveling on vacation or spending those few extra hours of daylight with friends and family. Virginia Blood Services would like to encourage donors to consider giving blood at this special summer blood drive for patients in our community and  help us keep the heat off of area hospitals this summer. Your one donation can save up to three lives in our community.

And donors will also be entered into Donor Days, which runs until Labor Day. For more information on Donor Days, click here.
