The Boro, Tysons’ premiere destination for luxury urban living in the heart of Northern Virginia, is partnering with The American Red Cross to host a Blood Drive. This will be an essential part of the life-saving network connecting donors to those in need of blood, platelets and plasma. There is an urgent need for blood donations right now to meet the needs of patients in hospitals as surgical procedures and treatments that were temporarily paused due to the pandemic resume again.
The American Red Cross is also currently testing all blood, platelet, and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies for a limited time and donors will receive the free results of their antibody test within 7-10 days through the Red Cross Blood Donor App or by logging in to the donor portal at RedCrossBlood.org.
The Boro Station Conference Center will be used for the Blood Drive to allow for proper social distancing. Individuals who would like to donate are asked to make an appointment online at American Red Cross Blood Services to schedule their donation from 9am to 3pm. Appointments allow the American Red Cross to exercise hygienic practices and provide donor services.
