VA Blood Services: Winchester Blood Drives

4 June 2018 Community News


In an effort to enhance their donor experience within the community, effective June 8, 2018, Virginia Blood Services  will be closing their Cork Street location in Winchester. According to a recent release, they are working with hospital and civic partners to establish a better venue for a donation site. In the meantime, they will continue collections in the community and expand donation preferences by adding a platelet donation option for blood donors.
