Virginia Blood Services holds 12-hour Broadcasters Blood Drive to help combat summer shortages.
Virginia Blood Services (VBS) in partnership with local media will host a 12-hour blood drive on Monday, June 25 at its headquarters at 2825 Emerywood Parkway in Richmond. The blood drive will encourage blood donation to combat summer shortages with the opportunity to win several prizes and enjoy food all day long from local restaurants.
“Summer is a difficult time for blood collection across the country,” said Communications Manager, Marly Fausz. “During the summer months donors are traveling, enjoying the weather or at home with children who are out of school, so blood donation is not top of mind for regular donations which puts pressure on the community blood supply.”
