Donate - save a life

Summer is a tough time for blood banks. Too many folks on vacation or involved in a busy life to think about stopping by a blood drive. But, the need for blood goes on and on. I've even read that the need is greater during the summer because more people are outdoors involved in activities that may result in an accident. I'm donating later this morning.
Find a blood drive and make an appointment with Virginia Blood Services, the blood bank serving much of the Shenandoah Valley and the Charlottesville area. You can visit them online or call Charlottesville (888) 977-8956, Harrisonburg (800) 543-2201, Ext. 4298, or Staunton (540) 332-4526. It only takes a few minutes and it gives the gift of life.
