In conjunction with INOVA Blood Services and Freedom Lodge No. 118, Herndon Lodge will host a Blood Drive on Saturday, February 18, 2017 from 8a – 1p.
Please consider signing up to donate. And if you can’t donate, please recommend our Drive to your family members, friends and co-workers. Giving blood is a generous, selfless, and beneficial thing to do for the community, and will help to ensure that an adequate supply of blood is available for the victims of accidents, patients needing to undergo lifesaving operations, and patients of all ages who depend on transfusion to survive.
Blood has to be there on the shelf ready to use if a disaster, an emergency surgery, or other unforeseen crisis occurs. It takes days of processing of donated blood in order to make it ready to use, and the only way to keep the blood supply ready is to donate whenever you can. Organizations like ours are huge help in the effort to ensure that the blood supply is maintained.
You can visit www.inova.org/donateblood and use sponsor code 7438 and make an appointment yourself, or you can call me at 703-655-4655 and I will make an appointment for you.
We have had good success in our past blood drives, but the need never diminishes. We need volunteer donors now. Please consider being one of them!
When you participate you will be giving something that can’t be manufactured artificially in the lab, and might mean the difference between life and death for someone!!
