The Knights of Columbus will be holding its Fall blood drive on Saturday, Sept. 26, from 8:00 – noon at the Columbian Center at 2324 Pump Road. Due to Covid 19 restrictions, we will not be able to offer breakfast to donors.

Please go to redcrossblood.org to schedule an appointment.  Again, due to strict Covid 19 regulations, no walk-in appointments can be accepted.  As in the past, all donors will be required to wear face masks, and screenings will be done before admittance is given to the donation area.  Donors are asked to show up on time to maintain the scheduled appointments.  If you sign up for an appointment and later find out you cannot keep the appointment, please call or text me at 804-513-4996 so I can try to fill your slot.

There are currently 9 slots available.   Please take a moment NOW and schedule your appointment.

All donors will automatically be tested for Covid 19 antibodies as part of their donation.

Thank you for your generosity in giving your life saving donation.
