Our upcoming blood donation event will be held at Northlea Elementary & Middle School on April 4th, between 2-7pm, and we currently need 125 donors to ensure we can continue to support local patients. See below poster with the event details and below are some facts on blood donations, that you are welcome to share.

General messages:

To donate, you must be at least 17 years of age, in general good health, and feeling well on the day of your donation.

The blood you give will be used within days to help someone. Any patient who needs blood in Canada will receive as many units as required, in most cases to help save their life.

The need for blood is constant. This is especially true for patients in Canada that have conditions that require regular blood transfusions, such as patients with cancer or blood disorders.

More regular donors are needed to maintain a strong national inventory of blood and blood products to meet patients’ needs.

It’s easy to book an appointment, locate a clinic, check your eligibility, and more. Download the GiveBlood app available for iOS on the App Store or for Android on Google Play, call 1 888 2 DONATE (1 888 236 6283), or visit blood.ca.
Who needs blood:

Every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood and often from more than one generous donor. Some examples include:

Up to 8 donors a week to help someone with leukemia
Up to 5 donors to help someone undergoing cancer treatment
Up to 50 donors to help someone in a car crash
Up to 2 donors to help someone who needs brain surgery
