Redskins “Give Local” At Weekend Blood Drive

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 28, 2014 – 4:52 pm


Blood is burgundy for a reason.

On Saturday, Washington Redskins players and coaches, in conjunction with Inova Blood Donor Services, partook in a blood drive at Redskins Park.

Part of Inova’s “Give Local, Save Local” campaign, the blood drive drew citizens of the DMV and beyond looking to support those in need to include head coach Jay Gruden.

“Gave some blood Saturday which was exciting,” Gruden said Monday before Brian Orakpo’s fourth-annual Leukemia Golf Classic at Trump National Golf Club. “Got to see some people and help some people. It’s a great opportunity to help people that desperately need it.”

Here’s Gruden shortly before needle’s first poke:

Offensive lineman Adam Gettis and linebacker Ryan Kerrigan also were in attendance and posed for photos with volunteers and adoring fans:

Finally, here’s tight end Niles Paul, heart filled with Redskins love, chatting with one young fan and his new lifetime keepsake:

Inova Blood Donor Services supplies 24 hospitals in Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C. metro area with lifesaving blood and blood products.  One blood donation can save up to three lives.
