Monday afternoon, the Capitals released the details of their next blood drive. The drive will take place on July 14, from 7am-5pm at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
Fans who donate will receive a t-shirt and a snazzy Chandler Stephenson bobblehead. Past blood drive bobblehead recipients include Jakub Vrana and Capitals Radio announcer John Walton.
Those who wish to donate blood must make an appointment by calling 1-866-BLOODSAVES (1-866-256-6372) or by going onto the Inova Blood Donor Services website. Slots will fill up fast, so make sure to make your appointment ASAP!
A friendly reminder to our many readers who celebrated the Caps’ Stanley Cup win by getting tattooed: There is currently no wait to donate blood when your tattoo is received in a state-regulated facility using sterile single-use equipment. The tattoo site must be properly healed. However, there is a one-year wait when received in District of Columbia, Georgia, Idaho, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Utah and Wyoming and outside of the United States.
