Thank you to all the community members that contributed to this year’s Community Blood Drive, hosted by Fairfax FCCLA and FFA Chapters. Each year FCCLA sets a goal, this year being 40 units of blood.

We are proud to announce that not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded it. We collected a total of 48 units and had 49 people. The blood that was donated will stay here in our community! Once again thank you for your support and hope to see you next year!
