Someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion every two seconds, yet less than 10% of Americans donate blood. Westminster Presbyterian Church (401 I St. SW) is helping our community meet its needs by hosting an Inova Blood Service drive on Saturday, Sept.18, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. There are lots of reasons to donate blood: to help save lives, in appreciation of times when a loved one received a transfusion, or to enjoy the free juice and snacks afterwards!
Donors must be 17 years of age or older (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 lbs, and be feeling well. All donors and staff must wear masks during the donation process.
