Browse General

Join us Monday June 25, at our Richmond headquarters located at 2825 Emerywood Parkway from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for FREE food, prizes and more!

DROP THE EXCUSES is a special event where Virginia Blood Services is partnering with local television and radio stations to encourage blood donation and help fight summer blood shortages.

  • Be one of the first 100 donors through the door and receive a special gift!
  • All donors will be entered to win a $500 VISA gift card as well as hourly prizes.
  • We will have FREE food all day from local restaurants.

In addition, all donors will receive TRIPLE donor rewards points to be redeemed at VBSrewards.com for cool VBS merchandise and summer gear.

Summer is a particularly unpredictable time for blood donation as people leave to travel, visit family and go to the beach but don’t make time to donate blood. Unfortunately, all this extra traffic on the road increases the likelihood of an accident and the demand for blood products. Now is the time to donate! Drop The Excuses and COME JOIN THE FUN!
