Alexandria, VA – The Zebra Press is teaming up with INOVA Blood Donor Services and hosting a Blood Drive Thursday, April 22.
The INOVA Bloodmobile will be open at the Zebra’s corporate office at 2800 Eisenhower Avenue, from 10 am to 4 pm on Thursday, April 22, and you can sign up for a time slot here.
Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. According to INOVA, more than 200 units of blood and its components are required daily to support the diverse communities they serve. Nearly 40% of the population is able to donate blood, but less than 10% do so regularly. There is no substitute for human blood – it only comes from generous volunteer donors.
Many people first donate at high school or college blood drives when they are asked for the first time. Others start donating when someone close needs blood components, due to an accident or as part of treatment for a disease. Still others donate because they like how they feel helping others.
No matter the reason, it’s vital to give blood if you can. The need has only increased due to COVID. Blood drives using the INOVA Bloodmobile are so valuable to answering the need for blood.
If you have any questions about donating blood, you can find most of the answers on the FAQ page on the INOVA website, https://www.inovablood.org/donate-blood/frequently-asked-questions/.
Please sign up for a time slot here for the April 22 Blood Drive at the Zebra office. It’s a great way to “Be The Good News in Someone’s Life!”
