Many thanks to the Honor Roll members who have come out for our blood drives for Virginia Blood Services. Blood and blood products are always needed. VBS is the nonprofit provider of blood products to our area hospitals. When you give blood through VBS, your donation stays in the area. Please give. Make an appointment online (www.VaBlood.org) or at 800-989-4438. You’ll receive an email when your blood has been shipped to a hospital in need, so you’ll know when your generous donation is impacting someone’s life. Be the giving type! Now through August 31, donors will be entered into a weekly drawing for a weekend get-away.
