Herndon Lodge 264 and Ashburn Sterling Lodge 288 will be hosting our next blood drive on Saturday, November 13th, starting at 8:00 am to 12:30pm. We would like to invite you to make an appointment and come and donate blood with us on that day.

The blood supply is always very low in our area, and hospitals and blood banks have to turn to volunteers in the community to help meet that need. Blood cannot be manufactured. There is no such thing as artificial blood. Maybe off in the future there might be, but right now the only way to answer the need for blood is if someone is willing to be generous enough to volunteer to give it. I am hoping that it might be YOU.

But more than that, I am asking you to consider making donating blood a regular thing in your life, like getting a dental checkup or getting the car inspected. There is no action more loving and generous in nature, more humble, or more anonymous, than donating blood.

Remember, you can make your own appointment for the next drive by visiting http://www.inova.org/donateblood, click on "Schedule an Appointment" and use sponsor code 7438.

This is our last blood drive of the year, and we have had three successful drives. Inova Blood Donor Services is pleased with how well we have done this year, and is very grateful for our support. The blood we donate goes to all the hospitals in the area, not just Inova's. Their blood bank answers the need wherever it exists.

Remember, a single pint of blood that you donate has the potential to save 3 lives. Please volunteer to donate on November 13th.
