Vienna Hosts Inova Blood Drive Next Friday

One pint of donated blood can save up to three lives.

Even if you’re squeamish about needles, next Friday (Jan. 18) is a chance to overcome that fear and donate to the Inova Blood Drive.

From 10 a.m.-2 p.m., the Inova Blood Drive will be held at the Vienna Community Center at 120 Cherry Street SE.

For those who can’t make it out to the blood drive on Friday, the closest spot to donate is the Woodburn Donor Center at 3289 Woodburn Road.

Appointments can be made online or by calling 866-BLOODSAVES and using the sponsor code 1058.

Donors will receive a pair of “lifesaver” socks. This year’s sock is blue with white snowflakes that include various blood types.

Be sure to check the chart below to ensure that you’re eligible to donate:
