RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Midas of Richmond will host four blood drives for the Red Cross around Central Virginia to help fill the “critical” need for blood.

During the pandemic, the need for blood continues but donations diminished.

Donors will also receive a free oil change for every donation from Midas.

“We are proud to have been hosting blood drives since 2001 and with over 26,000 pints of blood (verify), Midas donors have helped to save over 78,000 lives,” Mark Smith, owner of Midas of Richmond, said.

The drives will be on Saturday, June 12 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Midas Short Pump at Hilton Richmond Hotel Short Pump - 12042 West Broad Street Richmond, VA 23233
  • Midas Hull Street at Clover Hill Baptist - 3100 Old Hundred Road Richmond, VA 23236
