Blood Drive August 30 at Fauquier Hospital

American Red Cross Blood Drive
Thursday, August 30

10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sycamore Room
  Blood drive collection is at a 15-year low. Blood donations are down more than 10 percent across the country, with 50,000 fewer pints of blood available than expected.By donating blood, you can make a significant impact in someone’s life.

Blood and platelets are needed for many different reasons. It could be used for the little girl with a rare blood disorders, a family member fighting cancer, or a friend involved in a car accident. A supply shortage means that blood may not be available when it’s needed most. The Red Cross is grateful to those who are responding to this emergency call for help.

Before coming in to donate blood, remember to drink plenty of water, eat a good meal and bring a photo ID.

All presenting donors will receive a coupon for a free Varsity Haircut from Sports Clips.
