Due to a critically low supply of blood in the DC area, we are still holding our spring blood drive and need your participation! 

The blood drive will take place in a bloodmobile parked in the EDCJCC parking lot. Along with their regular set of precautions, Inova is taking many additional steps to ensure that donors are completely safe during this public health emergency. Please visit Inova's website for a comprehensive list of additional precautions they are taking at this time.
