Back by popular demand, Summer in Paradise: Donor-Rita-Ville with Virginia Blood Services is going on during the month of July.

With blood donors on vacation, and high schools and colleges hosting fewer blood drives, the goal of seeing more than 400 donors every day is a challenge. The need for blood is constant.

To thank you for making time to support life this summer, all participating donors will receive a limited edition Donor-Rita-Ville T-shirt, while supplies last.

Join us for our special Donor-Rita-Ville media blood drives this July!
