Blood Drive

Blood Drive

Be sure to bring your umbrellas on Saturday.  Looks like we are in for a wet morning Blood Drive.

In conjunction with INOVA Blood Service, the Brethren of Freedom Lodge invite you to participate in the Blood Drive on May 13, 2017 to be held at the Lovettsville Game Club.

The donation of a single pint of blood can save the lives of five people.   The literal life’s blood for each of us has no synthetic substitute.  Donations are perishable and must be renewed constantly to ensure an adequate supply is available to support our community in times of need.

Appointments are not required to participate, but we do need to know an approximate head count so that INOVA might plan the proper resources to quickly and safely collect the maximum number of donations possible.   Please send an email with your name and contact phone number to FreedomLodge118@gmail.com OR go to this DONATE link (then click on Donate Blood, and use Sponsor Code 7892) to reserve your appointment slot.

  1. Thank you to everyone that came out to help and donate blood. INOVA collected 25 pints of a badly needed resource.
    Thank you again for your support!

  2. Fantastic support from Freedom, the District, and the citizens of Lovettsville as INOVA collected 26 pints of blood. The Child ID was on track with 13 children provided with IDs. The Lions Club also provided vision screening.
    Thank you to all of those that participated!

  3. Foot traffic was on the low side, but 20 pints of blood and 1 unit of plasma was collected to serve those in need. Another 8 children were also provided IDs.

    Look for the next blood drive to be held at the Rescue Squad this Fall.
