Virginia Area IX Chapters

Part of the Northern Virginia Caucus

The chapters of Northern Virginia have set up a "NARFE Blood Pool" with INOVA hospital system. If enough Northern Virginia members donated blood to it, our members would have access to FREE blood for such needs as surgery. When you give blood, you can have it credit to the NARFE pool by telling them you are with "Pool Number 7016 - NARFE".
