Donate Blood

The greatest gift you can give this holiday. The Canadian Blood Services needs donors for the season due to low numbers on key dates. December 24th, December 26th, and December 31st see a pretty dramatic fall in donor numbers but it doesn't have to be that way! Book yourself an appointment today because one unit of blood can save up to three lives.

December 24th – 10 AM to 2 PM
December 26th – 3 PM to 7 PM
December 31st – 10 AM to 2 PM
