Friends of Sadie IS holding our Annual Valentine Blood Drive this year at the Woods Community Center! Due to COVID-19 protocols, INOVA cannot accommodate walk-ins. Call 1-866-256-6372 or click here to schedule your appointment.


We are working closely with Inova Blood Donor Services and the Burke Centre Conservancy to ensure a safe experience for everyone (click here to review current INOVA precautions). No volunteers are needed as we cannot provide childcare or baked goods. In lieu of a bake sale, an online opportunity will be offered for donations to The Truth 365.


Even in a pandemic, the gift of life is the gift of hope for children battling cancer. Peace to all in this new year.
