The bloodmobile will be at the following locations:

  • Thursday, Aug. 17 from 12-6 p.m. at the Fincastle United Methodist Church Family Life Center.
  • Friday, Aug. 18 from 9-11:45 a.m. at Carrington Place, 290 Commons Parkway, Botetourt Commons, Daleville.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 23 from 3-7 p.m. at Fincastle Baptist Church, 7330 Roanoke Road (UD 220) Fincastle.
