The American Red Cross is holding several blood donation drives in Loudoun County over the next few weeks.
The Red Cross wants to encourage people to donate blood especially during this time. The organization usually sees a decline in donations during the holidays because regular donors are busy with activities and travel.
Upcoming blood drives are: 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3 at The Village at Leesburg, 1609 Village Market Blvd, Suite 115, in Leesburg; 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4 at Northern Virginia Baha’i Center, 21415 Cardinal Glen Circle in Sterling; 2:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7 at Ashburn Farm Association, 21400 Windmill Drive in Ashburn; 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11 at Loudoun County Rescue Company 13, 143 Catoctin Circle SE in Leesburg; 2:30-7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13 at Claude Moore Recreation Center, 46105 Loudoun Park Lane in Sterling.
