Capitals to Host Blood Drive This Saturday

Kettler Capitals IceplexThis Saturday, Jan. 4, the Washington Capitals will host their annual blood drive at Kettler Capitals Iceplex (627 N. Glebe Road) in Ballston.

From 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., donors can spend their time — about an hour — giving blood to Inova Blood Donor Services at the Iceplex. Donors will receive a Jay Beagle bobblehead and a Capitals T-shirt.

To schedule an appointment to donate, donors can go online and enter the sponsor name, “Washington Capitals,” or call Inova at 1-866-BLOODSAVES (1-866-256-6372).

Potential donors should be feeling healthy the day of the drive and should have not given blood in the last eight weeks, or 16 weeks if the donor gave double red cells.
