Virginia Blood Services (VBS) is a nonprofit provider of blood services and blood products to area hospitals throughout the state of Virginia. When donors give blood with VBS, they are supporting patients in need every day.
While blood collection is a fundamental part of our organization’s purpose, providing safe blood products to hospitals and, ultimately, patients in need is our primary goal. In fact, we distribute more than one million blood components each year to people not only in the communities we call home, but also across the country and even the world.
VBS holds nearly 2,700 blood drives every year and has nine donor centers throughout the state including two in Richmond and others throughout Charlottesville, Chester, Glen Allen, Waynesboro, Roanoke and Harrisonburg. It takes more than 400 donations every day to meet the needs of patients in Charlottesville, Chesapeake, Emporia, Farmville, Fishersville, Harrisonburg, Richmond, South Hill, the Staunton/Waynesboro area, Roanoke/New River Valley, Northern Shenandoah Valley area and parts of West Virginia.
