Broadcasters for Blood Drive to be Held Monday in Cville

Posted: Updated:

Virginia Blood Services celebrates 40 years of serving central Virginia hospitals this year, and what better way to celebrate than with broadcasters and donors from central Virginia?

The Broadcasters for Blood Drive is happening from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Monday at the Omni Hotel. Free food, prizes, and giveaways are available to participants.

TV and radio personalities from Charlottesville will be out recruiting blood donors.

“I think the donors recognize their part is invaluable and what we do, we simply collect, process, test, package the blood products so that hospitals can actually utilize it to help save lives in our area hospitals,” said Terry Atwater of Virginia Blood Services.

Organizers' goal this year is recruiting 300 donors. NBC29 is a proud sponsor of this event.
