In becoming a blood donor or advocate for blood donation, you are part of a special group of people whose generosity and willingness to pay it forward have earned them the title “life saver.” Your donation has the power to save as many as three lives. The demand for blood is constant. Every two seconds someone needs blood, and one in every seven people entering the hospital require a blood transfusion.  Please consider making blood donation a regular habit. We at Virginia Blood Services hope to see you soon. For a complete list of donor centers throughout Virginia, visit
