Donate Blood

Inova Blood Donor Services will be onsite to collect blood in their bloodmobile. To make an appointment online click here, or visit www.inovabloodsaves.org and enter sponsor code 8131. You can also make an appointment by calling 1-866-256-6372 and referencing sponsor code 8131. You do not need an appointment but we encourage it to guarantee a time to give blood. But there are walk-in appointments available!

When you arrive onsite please first proceed to the large meeting room on the 1st floor of the Alexandria Beatley library. You will register there and then go to the bloodmobile for screening and donation.
