Inova to host blood drive in Old Town next week with Starbucks gift card as reward for donating

Forget a cookie or a sticker: donors at a blood drive next week in Old Town can get a $10 Starbucks gift card for giving blood to Inova Blood Donor Services.

The blood drive is scheduled for 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 24, outside City Hall (301 King Street). Those interesting in donating can book an appointment online. Inova also has an eligibility checklist available online.

In an event listing, Inova Blood Donor Services said donors may receive a $10 Starbucks gift card as a “thank you gift” while supplies last.

The additional incentive comes as blood supply at organizations like the Red Cross are particularly low.
