Be a Hero. Donate Blood!

The American Red Cross is holding a Blood Drive at Sentara Potomac Hospital on Tuesday, June 21, from 1:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Hylton Education Center.

The American Red Cross needs over 1000 units of blood every day to maintain a safe and adequate blood supply for our community, and they provide the majority of the blood supply at Sentara Potomac Hospital, so we would greatly appreciate your donation.

B Positive, B Negative, and O Negative blood types are below a level which is considered to be safe, but all blood types are needed in order to treat local patients who depend on that type.

Appointments are available every 15 minutes. For information or to register call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or specify a desired appointment time online at
