The Washington Capitals and Inova Blood Donor Services will host their annual winter blood drive from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington.
Those who give blood will get a Jay Beagle bobblehead and a Capitals T-shirt, according to a news release.
Patients in area hospitals require more than 250 blood products every day of the year, the release states. A single donation can save up to three lives, treating everyone from trauma patients to surgery patients, newborns, cancer patients and transplant patients.
Interested? Make an appointment now by calling 866-256-6372 or visit inova.org/donateblood and enter "Washington Capitals" as the sponsor name.
Donating blood takes about an hour.
